Special days for seriously ill young adults

For people living with a life-threatening illness, every day should be precious.

The pressures of diagnosis, treatment and recovery can have a devastating effect on work and family life.

Willow aims to redress the balance: providing unique and unforgettable moments and experiences tailored to each individual. Every effort is made to always ensure a stress-free, seamless experience, not only meeting but exceeding expectations. Willow currently has two services to support those with life threatening illnesses.

Willow accepts referrals for adults between the ages of 16-40 living with a life threatening condition.

If you’re living with a life-threatening illness, every day is precious.
