“Tyler gained lots of confidence and lots of new friends who he is still in touch with. I’m really glad he went. To meet children who have been through the same thing is invaluable. Whilst sailing, Tyler met a volunteer who had had the same cancer as Tyler and was in his twenties. That gave him a lot of hope for the future.”
- Mother of Tyler, 15
“The week has been the best! I never I thought I would get the chance to do this, and I am glad my nurse told me about the trip. The best bit is being on the boat and just sailing around and even getting to steer! I’ve made loads of new friends, I’ll definitely stay in touch.”
