Christmas Cheer

December 23rd 2013

Dear all of our wonderful supporters,

This time of year is a very special time of year for COSMIC. We take the time to reflect on the year we've had and to think about the future ahead, and as usual we are overwelmed by the amount of support we have received. The hundreds of thousands raised by all of YOU has meant that we have been able to continue supporting our vital PICU for another year to help hundreds of special patients, families and staff .

Because of you, we can continue helping and saving lives.

It's also the time of year where we think about all the patients, past and present that have come through our doors over the past 21 years. Each and everyone one of those children are brave COSMIC stars, and none of them are ever forgotten! It is the COSMIC Team's and PICU Staff's greatest joy to see past-patients and families again looking so well, and by releasing balloons at the Walk each year we remember all the special COSMIC stars in the sky.

Winter brings harsh bugs and the toughest time of year for our PICU staff. COSMIC have to work even harder to help them and make sure that everyone patient, family and staff member continues to have the vital support they need. The very kind donations we receive at Christmas makes this possible for COSMIC, and means we are able to spread some festive joy in the unit. For this we cannot thank you enough.

We have great things in store for 2014 with COSMIC's 20th Birthday and new campaigns! We cannot wait to tell you what we have in store, and cannot wait to see you in 2014.

Thank you once again to you all, and wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Love the COSMIC Team xxxxx
