Our mission

Every year thousands of 16-40 year olds in the UK are newly diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. When they should be enjoying the prime of life, they’re dealing with stress, isolation, medication and hospital appointments.

Willow believes that every moment should be precious. We’re dedicated to helping young adults take much needed time out from the reality of living with serious illness, creating magic moments that become lasting memories.

From Special Treats, our little boxes of joy, to Special Days at Home for all the family. From fun-packed Special Days Out to quiet Special Breaks away from it all; we offer the chance to meet heroes and legends or the opportunity to fulfil a lifelong dream.

In the toughest times, Willow creates life-affirming experiences that boost morale and bring friends and families together to create precious memories.
