What we’re about
A little bit about us and why Emma’s Bubble Trust was setup
As a living memory and tribute to Emma Louise Brandon, Emma’s Bubble Trust is committed to raising as much money as possible to help alleviate the physical and emotional suffering of teenagers who find themselves afflicted by cancer.
A much loved daughter, sister, granddaughter, girlfriend, niece and god daughter, Emma was a joyful, fun-loving teenager, affectionately known by her many friends as “Bubble”. Emma’s serenity and selfless concern for others remain a constant source of inspiration.
Drawing upon this inspiration, Emma’s Bubble Trust will work tirelessly to help raise awareness and understanding amongst GPs and teenagers about teenage cancers and promote earlier diagnosis of these conditions. Energy will also be directed towards supporting the families of those affected, ensuring that pastoral care and emotional and practical support are available in time of need.
Emma’s Bubble Trust will add its weight to the efforts of other charities that focus their activities on raising funds and awareness of teenage cancers and allocate funds to those organisations conducting research into teenage cancers in general, and lymphomas in particular.
Emma’s Bubble Trust’s initial focus will be to offer financial support to hospitals providing specialist teenage cancer care and treatment throughout Surrey. Initially this support will be centred on the Royal Marsden in Sutton, a special place allowing teenagers, like Emma, just to be.
Every Moment Matters Always is our charity’s slogan. It is derived from an acronym of Emma’s name. We believe it expresses a beautiful sentiment with universal meaning, and hope you do too. If you have any ideas about how we can bring this slogan to life, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone at Emma’s Bubble Trust is thrilled to have a growing network of teenage supporters under the banner of “Emma’s Army”.
The Army already comprises more than 1400, and communicates via dedicated pages on Facebook and Bebo.
Emma’s Army will become more and more important to our charity in the years to come and many thanks to Army “Generals” Ellen Aherne, Betty Blok, Sophie Briddon, Issy Brinsden, Louise Derrick, Charlotte Gilby & Laura Nelson for their commitment to the cause thus far.
