BARNABY WASS, Senior Vice President: “When he was 18 months old, my son Leon was diagnosed with leukemia and we received amazing support from a small non-profit that helps families of children with cancer: AFANOC. The invasive treatments needed to fight cancer mean that you are living in and around the hospital for many weeks. Throughout this time, the family’s day-to-day tasks continue alongside the treatment and can add to the struggle – having a decent meal, being able to shower, organizing supervision for the children when both parents visit the doctor - something as commonplace as a playroom for the kids to help beat the boredom is a real blessing. AFANOC provide fridges, lockers, game rooms and volunteers, as well as housing for families of patients from out-of-town. They are a small organization, but trust me they make a big difference. AFANOC was there for us during the tough times, and now that Leon has recovered we feel it is our time to give back. YOU can make a real difference: sign up and get your family, colleagues and friends to join us!"
