SIR - Ten years ago this year my wife and I set up a charity to help 16 to 40-year-olds living with serious illness after our daughter tragically died of cancer aged just 31.

During her illness our daughter Anna stayed positive and happy by keeping busy and having lots of fun days in her diary. During those days Anna would be symptom free and so many happy memories were created. The charity was set up to replicate the days we spent with Anna, providing special days for seriously ill 16 to 40-year-olds - a forgotten age group. Now more than ever we need support so we can continue to provide special days and ultimately achieve our goal of providing a special day for every seriously ill 16 to 40 year old in the UK.

If you think you can help in any small way, please get in touch with our fundraising team on 01707 259777, email fundraising@willowfoundation.org.uk or visit www.willowfoundation.org.uk.
