Smiles &

Providing children living with cancer the opportunity to spend quality time with their families.

Why do we do

What we do

Welcome to Smiles and Hope.

Our mission is to give families from the UK affected by the devastating impact of cancer, an opportunity to spend quality ‘family’ time together away from the hospital environment, unpleasant cancer drugs and long term side affects – so that they can enjoy life as a ‘normal’ family.

Smiles and Hope makes a difference to the lives of children living with cancer, providing a week’s break in the sun with their families. Taking them away from the fear and long-term effects of cancer, giving them smiles and hope for the future.

To date over 120 families have visited Crete with further applications arriving daily from local hospitals in the UK. Every week’s break offered to families is only made possible by the ongoing support of individuals and committed organisations who share our passion about making a difference to the lives of children living with cancer.
