In The Press

React works with families living in the UK who are caring for a child living with a life-shortening illness. The charity aims to provide comfort, dignity and the opportunity to participate in life as fully as possible. We are proud to be a life-line for families who have nowhere else to turn. Should you wish to learn more, our ‘In the press’ articles detail some stories of children React has been able to assist over the years.
