A partnership between Anthony Nolan and Over The Wall

Going through a stem cell transplant is tough for the whole family. You might feel overwhelmed and like the illness is a part of your identity. A 'normal' childhood with friends, fun, and freedom can seem unreachable. And sometimes, you all just need a break.

Family Camp 2019, a partnership between Over The Wall and Anthony Nolan, is here to do just that. You and your family can enjoy a two-day residential stay full of activities, fun, and making new friends with those who just get it.

The best part? It's all for free! And you'll have the peace of mind that you'll be cared for by Medical and Nursing Volunteers who have first-hand experience of caring for children post-transplant. You won't have to worry about a thing.

Naomi

'Naomi felt more confident afterwards, and seems much more grown-up when she goes out now. It's really hard to describe what Over The Wall has done for her. They make her feel special and understood.'
