Families affected by blood cancer given magical break to Disneyland Paris

 

A group of twenty families affected by blood cancer were treated to a special break at Disneyland, Paris this weekend, funded by the Alternative Hair Show and sponsored by Anthony Mascolo in support of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Now in its 26th year, the Alternative Hair Kid’s Party offers families a much-needed weekend away together and a chance to meet other families who have had similar experiences – away from the all-too regular hospital visits and gruelling treatments.

– Tony Rizzo, founder of the Alternative Hair Show, says: 

“I started this trip because I lost my own son to leukaemia and I know that the whole family suffer when a child is diagnosed with this terrible disease. The weekend allows the families to go away together and share happy memories. It is a therapy for them and it gives them strength.”

 

Children with leukaemia, their siblings and parents enjoyed a magical two-night stay at Disney’s Hotel New York and enjoyed a variety of entertainment from the world-famous Disney parades to Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show with Mickey Mouse and friends.  It also provided the families with a rare opportunity to meet each other and share their stories.

– Amanda Moreno, whose daughter Jessica was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia two weeks before her 14th birthday in April 2009, says:

“Coming to Disneyland with her family and with other children with similar conditions has been a medicine the hospitals can’t prescribe for Jess. Feeling normal and being understood this weekend is all part of her recovery and is something that is needed, as well as all the treatment.”

– Paul Cowpe’s six year old son Tom was diagnosed with leukaemia in October 2008 and Tom’s twin brother Daniel is pre-leukaemic. Paul explains why the Disney holiday has been so important to his family: 

“It has given us respite and allowed us to forget why we were there. The whole trip has been filled with happiness – Tom has smiled the whole way through. Tony and Maggie of Alternative Hair should be proud of what they have achieved year after year – enriching the lives of so many people. Thank you.”
