    I didn't really know what to put as a subject title I know that there is Make a Wish and other trusts that help children's dreams come true, but this is slightly different.

    DH has a colleague who has cancer, he has been given a "timescale" and wants to take one last family holiday. He has 3 children all under the age of 9 years and he wants it to be something special and amazing, something they will have happy memories of

    Disney has been mentioned, but he doesn't think it will be possible, so I was wondering if there was anywhere his wife could contact to see if they could help.

    I'm sorry for asking such a sad question, but I would really like to try and help them by finding out as much as I can and then DH can pass the information on.

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.

    Sandra thank you so much I really really appreciate it, I didn't even think about searching :rolleyes008:

    I'm all 6's and 7's at the moment, Chris had some bad news about a friend he has known for 28 years and I don't really know if I'm coming or going at this precise moment .

    I'll let you know how I get one and thank you again :)

    Gosh how awful, such young children too - so sad. I lost my bil to cancer not so long ago, he was so young and also left behind 3 children.
    I hope those websites are able to help him make a dream come true

    Thank you Kate and Julie

    I lost my dad through cancer, I saw what it did to him :( it was terrible for me, and to think of those little ones, probably not really old enough to fully understand, seeing their dad "change" over the coming months is awful.

    I've emailed both of the sites that Sandra posted, so I'll let you know how I get on
