A 35-year-old is so grateful to a WGC charity for funding a special break after her double cancer blow.
Just days after losing her mum to cancer, Stascia Warr received the devastating news that she too had cancer.
Following her diagnosis in February, Stascia saw the new Willow Shop in WGC and was interested to know what the charity did.
She said: “When I found out that they help people my age I applied but never thought I’d get selected. When I received the phone call from them saying that they would provide a short break away I was in total shock. I wanted some time away as a family, to relax and have some fun as I was still undergoing chemotherapy.”
Willow arranged for Stascia and her family, husband Marc, five-year-old daughter Sienna and two-year-old son Leo, to spend three-nights at Shorefield Country Park in Lymington, for some much needed family time away from her gruelling chemotherapy treatment.
