I don't want what he went through to be for nothing | Lukas' story

Film & Campaign Description

At Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, we support thousands of families with a child in hospital each year, by providing them with free ‘home away from home’ accommodation just minutes from their child's bedside.

This film was created to promote Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, when we shared the incredible story of Lukas and his mum, Katy and dad, Andrew.

This moving family story details the family's journey, including how Ronald McDonald House Charities UK was able to make a real difference to the family, during such an incredibly difficult time. As well as keeping his memory alive, we hope that this video helps to support hundreds of other families going through similar circumstances.

Ronald McDonald House Charities UK

The best medical care for your child isn’t always close to home, and families often find themselves travelling long distances to be with their child in hospital.

Our 14 Houses across the UK give families a warm and comfortable place to rest, eat and relax, just moments away from their child’s hospital ward. Our support is invaluable to families at a critical time in their lives.
