Not sure who to donate to?
You can still donate to Oscar Maclean Foundation - Accuro Triathlon and help with this event's fundraising efforts by supporting a great cause.
Oscar Maclean (09.03.04-26.10.13) was a Proper Hero. He lived a short but action packed life, during which he managed to write a spy novel, acquire endless party invitations, numerous sports and various other achievement awards, a great bunch of friends, love of sport and all things fun, as well as demonstrate endless bravery and dignity beyond his years in the face of great adversity.
Oscar has shown an incredible fighting spirit against his deadly enemy- a Grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma, a malignant brain tumour that eventually stole his young life away from him. But it will never succeed in stealing his wonderful memory away from any of those who knew him. For today and with every single day to come, we will try to change this world into a slightly better place by supporting worthy community causes aimed to help young Cancer patients in Jersey and their families, in Oscar's name.
A 2015 project that we helped to deliver is the funding of a children's Community Liaison Officer, who will be based at the Hospital. The Liaison Officer will be co-ordinating vital support for children with cancer and other chronic illness and their families - practical, financial and emotional. At present, some of these functions are fulfilled by different charities and departments, but the appointment of a single officer who will coordinate the entire support structure for a family will mean that parents will be able to focus on their child at the time when they need it most, instead of spending hours on the phone calling various charities, states departments or other service providers. Please help us by showing your support in memory of this gorgeous little boy.
