A Christmas Treat for Caroline


It was back in November that KOAC learned of Caroline’s condition through a mutual friend of some of the trustees. This seemed particularly cruel given that the festive season was just around the corner. So we decided to organise a Christmas treat for Caroline!

We were able to find out that Caroline was a massive fan of the singer Pink, who is about to embark on a tour including UK stadium dates. VIP hospitality tickets were viewed as the perfect treat that could hopefully lift Caroline’s spirits whilst she was undergoing treatment over the festive period and as you can see by her reaction below, she was delighted!

“So, my Christmas didn’t quite go to plan this year and unfortunately most if it was spent poorly and in hospital. BUT my Christmas day was still amazing because I received the best present ever!! VIP tickets to go see Pink in June!! I am so friggin excited! I will hopefully be finished with both radiotherapy and chemotherapy by then and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate!!! I’m utterly blown away by the charity Kicking Off Against Cancer for arranging these tickets for me with Dave ‘Jasper’ Joyce! Thank you so much for giving me something to look forward to and for making me smile during such a testing time”

This is where the money you raise as a follower of Kicking Off Against Cancer is spent, on making types of memories like these. We aim to pick people up in their darkest and hardest times. Hopefully providing memories that will last a lifetime. Ones that will momentarily take people’s mind off this terrible disease. Your kind donations and fundraising really does make a difference.

Thank you for your continued support!
