When five-year-old Rosie Larkin lost her battle against cancer in 1991, her family and friends were determined to carry on the fight to help other children affected by cancer. They set up Friends of Rosie, an independent charity dedicated to raising money for research into the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer.

As a volunteer-led charity, almost every penny we raise is spent directly on the new and innovative cancer research projects that we fund.

Whether you are a parent, relative or fundraiser, we are very grateful for your help in raising money to fund this vital area of research.
