Dream making for sick chidren

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading independent charity
dedicated to research on the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

Cancer Research UK funds the clinical trials work of the United Kingdom Children's Cancer Study Group.
UKCCSG has over 500 members working in its 22 centres
including about 60 corresponding members from other countries around the world.
The organisation works to improve the management of children with cancer
and to advance the knowledge and study of childhood malignancy.

'When You Wish Upon a Star' is a UK charity
which fulfils the wishes of children from 2yrs to 16yrs old
who have a life threatening or terminal illness.
'A dream is a Wish the heart makes.
As long as our brave children dream a Wish,
we can and will, make their dream come true.'

The highlight of the Charity's year is each December to charter 4 planes
and take 400 children to Lapland to meet the real Father Christmas...

...that trip is currently underway and CHERISH wishes
everyone the most wonderful time.
