Children’s Easter event plan is no yoke!

11 April 2019
Young patients are set to have a cracking Easter thanks to a brain tumour rehabilitation service based at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).

Brainbow is hosting a bumper event between 14:00 and 16:30 on Tuesday 16 April at Granary Estates in Woodditton which is expected to include an Easter egg hunt and other seasonal highlights.

The event is the latest in a series of events Brainbow has organised over the last few years, enabling children and families to have fun and network in a supervised setting.

Brainbow’s mission is to provide expert assessment and rehabilitation therapy for children suffering with the effects of a brain tumour so that they can reach their full potential. The generosity of charitable funders has enabled an expert multidisciplinary team to be established.

Anna’s Hope funds posts in occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech and language therapy, Tom’s Trust funds posts in psychology and Joshua Tarrant Trust fund posts in administration, service management and specialist education.

Paediatric oncologist, Dr Amos Burke, said: “We are really looking forward to the Easter event and are sure the children, families and staff who organise the day will have a great day.”

Anyone who wants to learn more about the service, or make a donation, should visit the Brainbow web page.
