“I’m Ellie Mae, I’m 10 years old, and I’m Kid Santa. This Christmas I’m making lots of children happy. But I’m not doing what old man Santa does and give loads of presents that kids don’t really need.
I’m here for a much better reason. I’m helping children with cancer. I’m delivering surprises to make their Christmas extra special. And I’m doing it because I know how much cancer costs. I had leukaemia.”
Move over Santa! There's a new kid in town.
Ellie Mae beat cancer. This Christmas she’s become Kid Santa and is on a mission to help other young people like her. Watch her story.
Cancer costs. Especially at Christmas.
Travel to and from treatment, accommodation close to hospital, expensive car parking costs, soaring household bills, and having to take time off work. We know that when their child has cancer, families spend on average an extra £600 a month. And around 61% of parents will end up in debt. When a child has cancer, families like Ellie Mae’s shouldn’t have to worry about money too. They’ve got enough to worry about.
Thanks to our supporters, CLIC Sargent was there to help Ellie Mae and her family get through the crippling fear, logistical nightmares and spiralling costs of cancer. But there are many more children like Ellie Mae who we’re not yet able to help, and that’s why we need your support. Because while Kid Santa can give people a magical Christmas, she knows she can’t take away the cost of cancer. After all, she’s just a kid. You can.
