In honour of International Childhood Cancer Day on 15th February, we were delighted to organise a visit to St John's Ward with some very special guests. We were joined by Batman, Wonder Woman, Tinkerbell, Star Wars and Harry Potter characters. The children were delighted to meet all of the characters and receive some character balloons, comics and sweets! A big thank you to Emerald Garrison for taking the time to meet the real superheroes of St John's Ward.

Childhood Cancer Foundation is delighted to introduce the Beads of Courage programme to children in treatment of St Johns Haematology/Oncology Ward. The programme has been welcomed by kids and parents on the ward. Caoimhe recently received her initial beads and her mum Lorraine said “It was nice the way we sat around the table in the playroom and we all looked at the beads and talked about Caoimhe’s story. It helped her to express herself”. Thanks to Lorraine and Caoimhe for sharing photos of Caoimhe’s Beads of Courage with us.
