  NC TLC Trust is a Northamptonshire based children’s cancer charityNC TLC Trust Founder & Son set up by Janet Walker-Smith in 2008 after her son TJ was diagnosed with (ALL) Leukaemia. The charity was formed following a lack of aftercare support to help them through their journey of treatment; now the charity supports families both regionally and nationally.

Today the charity and its board of Trustees ensure that the charity meets all the compliancy requirements set out by Charities Commission, which include policies, procedures to govern its operation and meet charity law.

“Finding out your child has leukaemia has to be among the worst news a parent can hear, for us it was a terrible shock and that day our lives changed forever. TJ was 17 months old and due to having his MMR vaccination in May 2005, but I noticed he didn’t seem very well and refused the inoculation. They did a blood test on him and by 4 pm that evening, he was admitted to hospital and they started treatment. He had a blood transfusion that evening.

TJ’s consultant Dr Shahid Ali asked if we had noticed TJ being sleepy and a change in his skin colour? He told us that TJ was very poorly and he had leukaemia. I burst out crying and KC (TJ’s older brother) ran down the corridor screaming, ‘No! No! No!’”
