These two pictures were taken at the Lord Mayors Parade in Liverpool on Saturday 7th of June 2003.

International Childhood Cancer Day 2004:
On the 15th of February 2004 CHICS held a Great Balloon Race. The balloons were launched outside the Oncology Unit at Alder Hey Hospital. Before the ballons were launched we were given a display of football skills and tricks which everyone enjoyed. Then just after 2pm the balloons were let loose. CHICS had originally hoped for around 2000 balloons, but thanks to everyones generosity CHICS were able to release nearly 5000.

After the balloons were released we were treated to a display of juggling, before going to the NALGO club in Alder Road for some more entertainment and a buffet. This picture is of (left to right), Wendy Peckham, Jayne Hollins and Lucy Williams, all patients cutting the iced cake at the NALGO club.

Chester MBNA Party 2004:
Here are some photos from the MBNA party had on the 29th Feb 2004. The party theme was "Finding Nemo" and the kids as well as the adults really enjoyed it. There was a bouncy castle, a clown doing balloons, playing games, a disco, video's to watch and a lovely party dinner. A good day was had by all. Thanks to all the staff at MBNA my little boy had a really good day, and thanks to CHICS and Erica.

CHICS (poem by Anna Lloyd):
. Have many lives to fix.
They're very very busy. They must get awful dizzy.
CHICS CHICS CHICS. Send people to magical places. If they're deserving cases.
Even to see Santa. If they really wanta.
It's an excellent cause. Let's give them our applause.

Our thanks go to Anna along with Stephanie, Jayne, Abbie and Chelsea (pictured below) who took part in a sponsored walk and raised a fantastic 243.45. Anna's poem was read out at the school assembly when Eddie went to collect the cheque. The girls were all pupils at St Mary's School, West Derby, Liverpool.

Our thanks also go to Mr & Mrs Stewart for all their help in looking after the girls on their walk.

E-Mail and Picture from Edward Riley:
I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia when I was 2 years old, 24 years ago. I was successfully treated at Alder Hey hospital. My parents (Lesley and Wally Riley) were actively involved with CHICS for many years, and it will always be very important to us. Alder Hey were unsure whether I would be able to have children or not but I was fortunate to have a little girl some 6 months ago. Here is a photo of me with my beautiful daughter Eleanor Mai, you can use this photo and e-mail on the CHICS site.

Thanks, Edward Riley
