Why should I cycle for Helen & Douglas House?
Your participation in Bike Oxford 2019 is going to make a real difference to local terminally ill children and their families. It costs £3 million a year to run our hospice and provide our outreach nursing service to help families at home and we cannot do this without your help.
Toby is five-years-old with a complex neurological condition called Dravet Syndrome, which means he experiences very frequent and severe seizures. The family was referred to Helen & Douglas House by their Health Visitor in October 2014, when Toby was 11-months-old.
‘The breaks at Helen & Douglas House keep us sane. They allow us to be the people we are. We’d fall apart without it.’ Tim, Toby’s Dad said.
‘Helen & Douglas House picked us up out of a deep dark hole and got us on our feet again.’ Kim, Toby’s Mum.
