Harry Phillips lives in Leeds in the UK. When Harry was diagnosed with ALL in November 2012 a member of staff mentioned to Harry that he would gain a new pal called Chemo Duck. A few weeks later Harry had not met his new friend but he didn’t forget. When Harry saw another child with their cuddly pal he again expressed his disappointment that he was still minus a Chemo Duck.
When he brought this to the attention of the staff at the hospital he was told that they had run out of Chemo Ducks and they were unable to get more duck s delivered.
Harry was devastated by this news! Harry’s parents were so sad to see his sadness and decided to be proactive. They contacted us here at Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program and we were able to find a Duck to send out to Harry. During our conversations we explained that shipping and distribution within the UK was the major hurdle in supplying the United Kingdom with Chemo Ducks.
By incredible co-incidence Andrew, Harry father is the Managing Director of a family run Shipping and Distribution Company called Jenkar Shipping Ltd. Jenkar shipping has offered their services to store and distribute Chemo Ducks in the UK, free of charge. The rest is history!
Together we are trying to raise funds to supply all the children diagnosed with cancer with their very own Chemo Duck. YOU CAN HELP! The cost to supply one Chemo Duck to a child in the UK is 22 pounds 50 per duck ($33.50) Please help Gabe, Harry and the Chemo Duck Program to supply the Kids of the UK with Huggable Hope in 2014!!
