We’re a small charity that makes a big difference to children with cancer through pioneering research.
Friends of Rosie is a volunteer-led charity that provides funding for children’s cancer research to get new ideas off the ground. Without our help many research projects would never get underway, meaning critical breakthroughs in childhood cancer research being left undiscovered.
50 years ago, three quarters of children diagnosed with cancer died. Today, more than 8 in 10 survive – thanks to research. But many childhood cancers still have a poor outlook and today’s treatments are harsh, unpleasant, and uncertain. Research is the only thing that will change that outlook.
Over the past 30+ years, we have funded a total of 28 research projects at a cost of £2.75 million covering all kinds of childhood cancers.
Rosie’s Friends is a place where children, families, and friends can come together for the benefit of all children with cancer. You can share your child’s story, fundraise directly in their honour, and help fund new research for the good of all.
We focus on kick-starting new ideas to change the outlook for children with cancer.
There are load of ways you can get involved and be the difference for children with cancer.
We’re proud to work with other charities and organisations. Together we can make the most difference.
Together, we can give all children with cancer a brighter future. Become a Friend of Rosie and help us.
