Enable Law is pleased to announce its new partnership with Mummy’s Star, the charity dedicated to supporting pregnant women and new mothers living with cancer.

Founded in 2013, Mummy’s Star was set up by Pete Wallwroth, who lost his wife Mair to cancer very shortly after she gave birth to their son. The charity provides a range of information and support to women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy or within 12 months of birth.

Its services include emergency grants, advocacy, an online forum and bereavement support. They also offer a one-stop shop for advice on cancer during pregnancy in collaboration with Macmillan.

Ceri-Ann Taylor, Senior Associate at Enable Law, said: “When I was first introduced to Mummy’s Star, I was struck by what a difference they made to the lives of the women and families they support.

“It is a truly wonderful and unique charity, passionate about helping families affected by cancer at an otherwise magical time of their lives. We are proud to be able to support it.”

Louise Harlow Engagement and Fundraising Co-ordinator at Mummy’s Star added: “We are delighted to be working with Enable Law. Mummy’s Star have supported over 600 women diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or within a year of birth in the last five years, but we know there is so much more to be done.

“This partnership will allow us to further disseminate information about what it means to be diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy, offer us the ability to refer for advice where needed and progress our work further by raising much needed funds.

“We are looking forward to seeing what opportunities will present themselves as we work together with a shared passion to reflect upon and improve the care of all cancer patients.”
