About Jordan About Jordan


Welcome to the TOMA Fund, a charity which supports children, teenagers, young people and their families in the North East and Cumbria who have been affected by a diagnosis of childhood cancer.

The Toma Fund is dedicated to the memory of Jordan David Thompson and Sophie Ela Atay, who were cousins that tragically died from childhood cancers. Jordan was 15 when he lost his battle with Leukaemia in September 2007 and Sophie was just 2 when she died of Neuroblastoma in March 2010.

How it all started

The fund began when Jordan was ill and he wanted to do something to help other's like himself who were going through treatment at Newcastle's RVI. Through Jordan's efforts and later those of his family and friends, the Toma Fund raised over £400k towards the support and build of a dedicated unit in the RVI, Newcastle specifically for teenagers living with cancer.

How we are making a difference

The Toma Fund is now an independent charity and it is dedicated to helping children, teenagers, young adults (between the ages of 0-24years) and their families, who are going through treatment for childhood cancers in the North East and Cumbria.

Our supporters have raised money in a whole host of ways and their generosity and that of those donating has been amazing.

By distributing the funds raised The Toma Fund aims to do the following:

Support families who are experiencing financial difficulties caused by caring for and supporting their child through cancer treatment
Provide equipment for children and young people going through cancer treatment
Provide opportunities for children, young people and their families who are going through cancer treatment to have experiences that provide memories for the future

Keep checking this site for exciting news and ways to get involved with this very worthy cause.
