Here are just some of the young adults we have helped

Ross was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the upper spine.

Hi Sue
I would just like to thank you again for the next vouchers.
The work that you do for the Tuesday O'Hara fund goes beyond words. The past year has been the hardest of our lives, but we have also been overwhelmed by the kindness that we have recieved.
We have felt at times let down by some of the health care professionals with their sometimes lack of compassion and the lack of knowledge that we have recieved (or not).
The Tuesday O'Hara fund has helped us, not only from the extremely generous gift of £500 next vouchers but also from the support and kindness  that you have showed us. To beable to speak to someone that understands what we are going through and has been through the same battle is amazing. To know the feelings and frustrations that we have felt are normal and just vent our frustrations to somebody who listens has helped us alot. 
I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us. The Tuesday O'Hara helps people at the worst point in there lives when only someone who has been through something similar can relate too.
I thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Faye & Ross 

Ross is doing well after an operation on his neck and in remmission.

'I could never put into words how grateful I am to the Tuesday charity for helping me in my darkest hour. They helped me and my family get through a really tough time and provided not only financial support but also emotional. The charity provided me with the wig in this picture which helped to build my confidence after losing all my hair and also contributed a large amount of money so I could go on holiday after my treatment had finished!'
