I know a little girl of 6 who is having to undergo intensive treatment at the moment and will have to be away from her family, which leaves them with additional costs to get to and from Bristol from MK which I am sure you will appreciate splits a family at the most crucial time in their lives

We lost our first born, nothing to do with cancer, but with my wife in hospital and our new born for the time she was with us, we had to manage on a lower than normal income with the costs of visiting hospital. Emotionally a harrowing time, but also a financially crippling one as well. Parents need more support, all your efforts go into caring for your loved ones, to have support financially, or at least know it's there would be an extreme benefit.

It is disgraceful that any person/family going through the most traumatic time in their lives should have to also have the financial worry burdening them too. They should be made to be a as comfortable as possible in a very difficult time of their lives. This needs to be addressed immediately!
