Maisy’s Story

Maisy's a superhero. She's just full of joy. And she's been through it

Maisy’s story is tough to hear, but it’s really important to share. Not long after her fourth birthday, Maisy was diagnosed with a Wilms’ Tumour, a form of kidney cancer. Her treatment can be intensive, meaning she’s away from her friends and family for long periods of time. She misses her sisters. But, thanks to your donations she has things and people to look forward to. One person Maisy always looks forward to seeing is Wilf from Read for Good. He brings gifts of books for all the children here and, what’s more, he brings joy.
