It is with very deep sadness that we write this status to tell you all that the son of one of our very precious CCF families has now grew his angel wings. 

Frankie Da Silva sadly lost his battle on the 19th January at 1.40am. Frankie was the son of our 10th CCF family, he was such an adorable and courageous little boy. We felt blessed that we were able to financially support his family to allow them to have the best Christmas they could wish for, without worrying about 'can they afford it'

Frankie’s fight for life was nothing short of difficult where he faced many many days battling his condition. We unfortunately never got the chance to meet the beautiful Frankie and his family in person, however, we felt we knew this amazing little boy so well from his courageous story we followed and the many conversations about him with his amazing mum Nicola. 

Not long before Frankie grew his angel wings he and his family enjoyed an incredible trip to Disneyland Paris. Frankie had the most amazing time, he was treat like royalty. The family made so many precious memories on this trip and we hope that they can carry these memories with them a lifetime through.

There are no words we can say that will take their heartache and pain away…..but we do hope all the special times they have shared together with Frankie will bring them great comfort at this very heart-breaking time. Frankie is now flying high and free with all his angel friends. We have no doubt in our mind that our Angel Charlie has welcomed him with open arms and they are already becoming the best of friends causing much mischief together. 

We know all of our supporters will join us in sending our deepest sympathy to all who knew Frankie. Special love to his Mammy, Daddy and brother Louie. Fly high and free with the angel’s precious one with no tubes, no equipment and no pain….you will forever hold a very special place in the hearts of all at CCF xxxxxxxx
