Below is a quote from an article written in the Guardian newspaper, and link, about the situation Sister Frances found herself in and why she wants to do something to help.
“For more than 30 years, Sister Frances Dominica was a constant presence at Helen House, the children’s hospice she founded in Oxford in 1982. To generations of ill children and their families, the slight, softly-spoken nun became a friend and a lifeline in the darkest of times, while the small centre built in the grounds of her convent inspired a growing network of similar refuges from Canada to South Africa to Japan. If the children’s hospice movement had a figurehead, it was the unimpeachable nun, who was awarded an OBE by the Queen, interviewed on Desert Island Discs and showered with honorary degrees and awards”.
