Sister Frances Dominica
React was founded under the guidance of Sister Frances Dominica OBE, who identified a gap in the palliative care system which left families struggling to cope with the additional costs of caring for a child with a life-shortening condition. As the charity’s sole Patron, Sister Frances continues to guide React’s work, and by using her expertise in the field of children’s palliative care, ensures the charity continues to meet the needs of children living with a life-shortening condition. Sister Frances has dedicated her life to children’s palliative care and founded the world’s first children’s hospice, Helen House in Oxford in 1982.
The Kibble family
Meet the Kibble Family: React has worked with the Kibble family for a number of years, providing vital items including specialist seating, sleep systems, clothing and bedding, and a washing machine. The provision of this equipment has ensured parents Chelcie and Billy can care for their children with greater ease. Lily-Mae and baby Liam both live with a Congenital Brain Defect and require round the clock care. Three year old Lacey helps out as best she can.
