We believe small gestures can make a big difference to the lives of women facing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.
Every year approximately 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, making it the most common cancer*. We’re on a mission to support them by offering a littlelifts box at the beginning of their chemotherapy treatment. We do this by working directly with hospitals in Norfolk and Suffolk, where boxes are given out to patients during chemotherapy planning or review meetings with their Oncology Team or Breast Care Team.
We are a small, but mighty team aiming to support approximately 600 women per year across our hospital partnerships in Norfolk and Suffolk. These are:
Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn), James Paget University Hospital (Great Yarmouth), Ipswich Hospital and West Suffolk Hospital.
In 2014 at the age of 28, founder of the charity Oa was diagnosed with primary breast cancer. What followed was a whirlwind of emotions and medical appointments before she began her chemotherapy treatment. It was a scary time.
Lifting those down days
Leading up to and during her treatment, Oa was fortunate to have a support network of friends and family to help her along the way - lifting those down days with a few little treats to relieve some of the side effects she experienced.
The impact these small tokens had on Oa’s wellbeing was huge, and so the concept of ‘littlelifts’ was born.
