Hello and Welcome!
Willow Foundation Special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds For those living with a life-threatening illness, every day deserves to be treated as precious. Sadly the stress and difficult realities of diagnosis and treatment mean that it's all too easy to forget that life is here to be lived. The Willow Foundation is a unique charity that organises and funds special, morale-boosting and memorable days for seriously ill 16-40 year olds. The Foundation provides more than 100 special days every month for individuals and their loved ones. In 2009 the charity will provide a projected 1,450 special days. There is no other UK charity that provides special day experiences for the 16 to 40 age range across all life-threatening conditions, including cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, organ failure and many others. The Foundation strives to create an unforgettable day that is tailored to the needs and dreams of every recipient. He or she chooses exactly what they would like to do on their special day. Some of the most popular requests include: trips to West End shows and pop concerts, tickets to sporting events such as Premiership football, city breaks, stays in the country, days at health spas, driving performance cars, trips in hot air balloons and helicopters. Willow was founded in 1999 by Bob and Megs Wilson as a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer, aged 31. Bob Wilson is the former Arsenal and Scotland goalkeeper and TV presenter. Help us do something specialThe Foundation is grateful for every donation.
