A FORCE FOR CHANGE
What is Aoife's Bubbles?
Aoife's Bubbles is a movement, a force for change, a fight for justice.
Aoife Flanagan-Gibbs was born on 21st January 2016. True to her name, Aoife was a genuine 'warrior princess', beating meningitis at 6 weeks of age. Aoife recovered remarkably and went on to live a full life, with Mummy Eilish, Mummy's horse Argy and Aoife's pony Bubbles.
On 2nd July 2019, Aoife was finally diagnosed with Germ Cell cancer after months of GP and hospital visits.
On 7th July 2019 at 02.15 am, Aoife passed away - aged just 3.
We are awaiting our charity registration, but we will be the UK's only registered childhood Germ Cell cancer charity. We want to raise as much awareness and educate as many people as possible about the symptoms, diagnosis and effect of this disease. We also aim to change national childhood cancer diagnosis times by raising much needed childhood cancer awareness as a whole and ending the stigma childhood cancer is rare. We want to educate the medical community and empower parents with vital childhood cancer information, in particular Germ Cell cancer. This will, without a doubt - save young lives.
We are also providing acts of joy to children and their families affected by childhood cancer, as well as supporting families who, like us, children have passed away.
This is her story. This is our movement. This is our fight for justice.
