Rainbows Hospice covers the whole of the East Midlands providing care and support for the region’s children and young people who need it the most. It was founded by Gail and Harry Moore, whose daughter, Laura, died of Leukaemia in 1989. Laura's favourite thing in the world was a rainbow.
Rainbows opened its doors in 1994. Since its official opening in April 1995 by HRH Prince of Wales, thousands children, young people, their families, siblings, relatives and friends from across the East Midlands have used the hospice. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare to be told their child will die before them. But for an estimated 20,000 families across the UK, this is a reality. Some of these children will die when they’re very young, others will deteriorate slowly over a number of years. In most cases, full-time care falls to the parents – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
