This year World First have chosen to support the outstanding work provided byBacZac. BacZac His Legacy is a charity that has been created by the family and friends of Zac Forskitt.
Zac at the age of 20 was diagnosed with 2 rare forms of cancer, both friends in Northampton and Nottingham where Zac was at University studying, with the aid of patrons of Old Northamptonians pulled together to create #BacZac to support not only Zac but his family with the many obstacles along the way.Read more
Sadly in March 2016 Zac lost his brave and courageous battle, it was soon decided from the experiences Zac’s family had experienced that a legacy would be created in Zac’s honour, helping other young adults going through similar trials and tribulations.
BacZac his Legacy looks to support young adults in the following ways:
- BacZac His Legacy give “High Street” vouchers to 3 cancer units, these are then distributed to patients as a pick me up. Also at Nottingham we provide meal vouchers for young adults who are classified as in and out during Chemotherapy, which means they can be in receiving treatment for hours, but are not entitled to a free meal.
- BacZac His Legacy give small grants to families with a young adult suffering with cancer, this can be used for a family day out when possible, or to help with the financial burden the families are having to deal with.
- Lastly BacZac His Legacy’s long term aim is to provide a respite holiday accommodation for families with a young adult suffering from cancer, possibly one last trip away as a family or to aid a bereaved family.
