Please donate to the Sweet Louise Christmas Appeal today, so mums like Vanessa and her family can get the support they need this Christmas.

Your generous gift will help bring comfort and joy to women like Vanessa, facing a diagnosis of incurable breast cancer this Christmas.

When the doctor told Vanessa breast cancer meant she might not live to Christmas, her first thought was for her two young children – Connor and Charlotte.

Vanessa recalls thinking: “For me, making memories is the most important thing I can do with my children and my family.”

Your Christmas kindness can be a bright smile of joy to a mum battling with all the challenges a terminal cancer diagnosis brings:

  • You gift a special experience so families to have fun and create memories together
  • You provide someone to lean on for care and expert advice
  • You provide vouchers for practical help like ready-made meals and help around the home

Vanessa adds:

“The work that Sweet Louise does is so inspiring. I always hear from my Support Coordinator and the vouchers are wonderful too. It is hard for many families to take time off work, and it can be a struggle to pay for treatments – that’s why so many women and their families really appreciate the vouchers.

"Sweet Louise does a fantastic job supporting women like me and genuinely being there for them.”

Without kind caring people like you, Kiwi women like Vanessa, would miss out on the support they desperately need at this critical time in their life.

Please help today with whatever gift you can manage.
