Jamie was a popular and talented young man who could have gone on to do great things, sadly it was not to be. Lynch Syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic condition that has a high risk of colon cancer as well as other cancers including endometrial cancer (second most common), ovary, stomach, small intestine, hepatobiliary tract, upper urinary tract, brain, and skin. The increased risk for these cancers is due to inherited mutations that impair DNA mismatch repair. It is a type of cancer syndrome. Lynch syndrome is a condition that can run in families. LS is also known as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). It is caused by an alteration in a gene called a mismatch repair gene.
Outcry Theatre Company
The Outcry Theatre Company. Based in nearby Colne, are a small, independent arts organisation who work alongside community events and shows whilst producing their own work in local theatres and other spaces. Their aim is to be an inclusive theatre company and welcome people of all abilities regardless of background, ethnicity, race, religion, gender or any other factor with the ethic of contributing positively to local arts and where possible, give back to the community. They have also recently set up the Outcry Junior Theatre Company. The group are entirely self funded and have spent two years raising enough money to put on their first complete play. Our help will go towards buying uniform and costumes for juniors and seniors and enabling them to put on a big show next summer.
Once Upon a Smile
Once Upon a Smile provide emotional, practical & financial support to bereaved families at their time of need to enable them to move forward.
Our charity is the only bereavement charity in the UK to offer a variety of support to families through such a difficult time, not only are we unique in this way but we also tailor the support we provide to families to fit their individual needs.
Families are often left to grieve alone with no, or little support available and this can often have a devastating impact on family life and children.
The group helps patients and the families of patients with a Segmental overgrowth in the PIK gene.
This is a very rare condition where there is an excess of growth in different parts of the body, but normal growth elsewhere.
Our Horsepower Heroes travelled across the county to deliver toys and amazon vouchers to SEVEN of the main hospitals in the county.
