What is a Special Day?
At a time of uncertainty, a Special Day provides the inspiration to make every moment count. For some people it is a positive focus away from diagnosis and treatment and may be a final chance to create lasting memories. For others, it can mark the recovery from a serious illness, boost confidence and provide motivation to move forward with their lives.
Further information on the charity's service and Special Days can be found on the special days application form and in our frequently asked questions.
Please note that all applications must be made on an official Willow application form. Applications must be completed in full and signed by the applicant, their responsible companion and a medical professional involved in their care and treatment.
