When Ellie stopped smiling, her mum and dad, Jenna and Luke, knew something was very wrong. It turned out that their baby daughter had an aggressive brain tumour.

The family say they  feel lucky to have the support of Julia’s House but we feel lucky too - to be able to be  there for them. But we could not do it without you.

Please give what you can this Christmas so that families like Ellie’s can continue to receive the gift of care through the difficult weeks and months ahead

The world is in turmoil and none of us know what the future holds, but no-one should ever have to face a journey like theirs on their own. With your help, they never will. Thank you.
