Helping to Support Teenagers & Young Adults With Cancer

The positivity that Sam showed throughout treatment is something that we want to encourage in others. In Sam’s memory, we have created Sam’s Gift – a ‘Journey Box’ where hopes, fears and wishes can be expressed.

Who we are?

At Sam's Gift Charity, our mission is to bring moments of comfort, joy, and connection to teenagers, young adults, and families navigating the challenges of cancer diagnosis and end-of-life care.

Through our handmade journey boxes, we aim to provide solace, inspiration, and support during difficult times, ensuring that no one faces these journeys alone. With compassion and dedication, we strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those touched by cancer, offering hope and strength with each carefully crafted gift

A Little About Sam...

Sam was a sensitive but forthright character who cared deeply for his family and friends. We want to do something that not only ensures Sam’s memory lives on, but helps others. We know that’s exactly what Sam would have wanted.
