“I was very young when my sister passed away 13 years ago, but I remember acutely the impact that React had on my sister. React provided Zoë with sensory toys that helped her enjoy her short life. The help we received was crucial towards the end of her life and I am proud to be fundraising for React, so that they might help another family in the same way, at such a difficult time.” Ben Stone.
