Sincere Support has assisted hundreds of families with sick children in hospital or who have sadly been bereaved. We are an organisation, helping those who have no other means of financial support to cover the non - medical expenses that arise when a child needs to be sent to Sheffield Children's Hospital or out of town for surgery or on-going treatment. Those expenses cover a broad spectrum of needs that are individual to each family. Sometimes it is the need to look after accommodation for the months the family will be away or to cover the cost of day-care for siblings left behind while parents are with their sick child. Whatever the need, Sincere Support has always been there to help ease the financial burden the family must face.
Every family Sincere Support has helped endure a myriad of emotions from fear to frustration. Sometimes the outcome is tragic, we don't always win. The pain of losing a child is unimaginable to most of us and even more heartbreaking if it happens after months of being away from home. That reality is unbearable. It's not only the child and their families who win, by having 'more tomorrows' but all of us who have helped to make it happen.
We are able to share joy of success not only when we get the call that the surgery is over and "My child is doing great!", but every time we get a letter, a Christmas card, a picture or a thank you from a very grateful family.
