Emma’s Army will be cruising down the Thames next Friday night 28th June to raise awareness about teenage cancer.
When cancer tragically cut short the life of teenager Emma Brandon, her friends and family set up Emma’s Bubble Trust. The aim is to raise money to help alleviate the physical and emotional suffering of teenagers who find themselves afflicted by cancer.
Emma was known affectionately by her friends as Bubble – a reflection of her fun loving, joyful personality. Her serenity and selfless concern for others when she was diagnosed as being terminally ill inspired those close to her to help others who find themselves in a similar situation
Hence, the fighting spirit known as Emma’s Army!
They work tirelessly to raise awareness and understanding amongst GPs and teenagers about teenage cancers. And support the families of those affected, when they need emotional and practical support in their time of need.
Part of their fundraising activity this year is a disco boat cruise to be held on Friday 28th June 2013.
Tickets are just £22 for a 4 hour cruise along the Thames and night of dancing.
If you know of a teenager who is – or has been affected – by cancer then please show your support to all the wonderful GP’s, Cancer Specialists and Nurses who go out of their way to care for teenagers like Emma and their families.
Raising money for the Royal Marsden in Sutton where Emma received treatment is a major focus of the trust.
All you have to do is buy a ticket and get on board the boat!
There are just 20 tickets left. For details please contact Lynn on 07732 262011 .
