There are 10 months to go to raise the money to build our new Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
In this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, many of us have experienced for the first time in our lives the difficulties of social distancing, shielding and isolation. For many families of young patients staying on our Cancer and Leukaemia ward, these are daily realities of their treatment.
Our Oncology and Haematology department treat children from babies through to 19-year olds, in South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and as far south as Northampton. One of twenty principle treatment centres in the UK, we care for children with cancer and leukaemia as well as patients who have other blood problems such as bleeding and inherited disorders.
While many of us are able to distance in our homes, children are still receiving treatment on our ward in facilities which could be better. The care and attention from the doctors and nurses is second to none, but the facilities for the young patients do not match the quality of their treatment.

Together, we can create a new home from home for our patients, with space, privacy and natural light to make isolation a place of sanctuary and calm.
With your help, we can build single patient rooms with en-suite facilities, giving patients a place to make their own, with room for all their toys and space for a parent to sleep comfortably alongside them.
The new design would see more patients benefit from the welcoming views over Weston Park, with larger bed bays and more isolation rooms. Increasing the ward footprint would also expand the space for children to play and more than double the size of the ward classroom.

Your donations help change the lives of children like Izzie
We are raising money to transform our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children's. Making the facilities brighter and more modern for patients undergoing treatment, like Izzie. Izzie was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in January 2019 and after six months of chemotherapy and treatment she was able to ring the bell to mark the end of her treatment and entering remission. Her regular visits to our hospital and stays on our Cancer Ward motivated her to raise money to help make the facilities on the ward the best they can be for children who are poorly in future, with her friends and family she raised over £14,000!
