The Joshua Tree is a Cheshire based Children's Cancer Charity which operates across the North West and North Wales and are dedicated to working closely with families affected by childhood cancers. They work with the whole family - patient, parent, siblings and grandparents - in recognising that every family’s cancer journey is unique.
Services are tailored to suit the family’s specific needs, by means of emotional, academic and practical support, such as counselling, art and play therapy, health and well-being advice, support in and around the home and educational tutoring where required to help ensure that life remains as normal as possible during an incredibly traumatic time.
The Joshua Tree was founded in 2006 by Lynda and David Hill after their son was diagnosed with leukaemia. They discovered a distinct lack of support services for all family members during the traumatic experience of childhood cancer. Much more of this story can be found on their website.
In the past 12 months a new Support Centre has been constructed in our Parish with access from Dalesford Lane – PRESS HERE for a bird’s eye view of this tremendous new facility.
