Our motivation is simple, we want to bring
"Big Smiles" to the lives of young adults with
life limiting conditions.
Karen's Big Smiles works in the Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire counties helping young adults between the ages of 18 and 40 who are living with life-limiting conditions.
Founded by the friends of Karen Jenkins to promote PMP, the rare form of cancer that Karen suffered from and to help and support this age group, who can sadly get overlooked.
Karen's wish was to raise money to help people with life limiting diseases and to give them and their families a "Big Smile" in whatever form that may be.
Since the charity began in 2008 we have provided an amazing amount of "Big Smiles" to young adults living with life threatening conditions. This could have been in the form of home help, one-off treats, travel costs, weekend breaks.
