One of the most informative websites about childhood cancers in the UK... and a most wonderful charity:
"The O’Gorman family was shattered when brother and sister, Paul and Jean, fell victim to cancer within nine months of each other.
Always a caring boy, Paul asked his parents, Eddie and Marion O’Gorman to promise to help other children with leukaemia. Paul died in February 1987 aged just 14 and only nine weeks after his initial diagnosis of leukaemia in 1986.
His sister Jean, despite her own battle with cancer, had started to raise funds for children with leukaemia in her brother’s memory. Jean died just nine months later that November and days after our first Ball, which Jean helped to organise.
