The Milly Foundation

posted in: Good Causes | 0

The Milly Foundation was started Jon Reeve and his wife Donna a year after their daughter Amelia ( Milly ) died from Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. A.M.L is incurable. Milly passed away on the 7th of May 2010 aged 3 years and 5 months old. She had spent the last 6 months of her life in hospital with her mum and dad living with her. They would have liked to have been able to take Milly on one last holiday, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be. They now wish to help other families in the same situation. We are a local charity for children up to the age of 18, suffering from life threatening diseases. The idea is to provide a holiday home, a caravan, on the Allhallows Haven Caravan Park. Should the children be allowed out of hospital and their families would like to, we will provide them with a break from the hospital environment free of charge. A break like this also helps families to build memories. Donna and Jon know first hand what these people are going through and how much it means to get away, even for just a little while.
