Why we set up The Evie Dove Foundation
In April 2021 our beautiful daughter Evie was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and over the next 11 months she and we as a family battled through brain surgeries, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and cutting edge immunotherapy.
Her spirit, humour and love of life never waned but despite moving mountains we could not save her. As her legacy, she inspired us and our trustees to set up The Evie Dove Foundation to sponsor and support the further education of young medical professionals in paediatric care to go on and help thousands of children in the future and save many lives.
Through the foundation’s work we seek purpose and to honour our beautiful Evie and all she stood for.
About the Foundation
The Foundation is being set up for the benefit of sick children and their families, focusing on the advancement of children’s health and the saving of children’s lives and pastoral care of families going through traumatic experiences. In particular the Foundation will issue grants and awards to help advance those working in, or returning to, paediatric care in UK hospitals, through education, to perform more senior and influential roles in paediatric health care and by doing so help to contribute more to the care of sick children and their families in the UK. This also helps address a serious shortfall in the paediatric workforce in the UK.
We intend to select, sponsor and support incredible individuals driven by a desire to care for children and their families.
