Rosie's Friends

Our Partnerships


We are members are the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and part of the Children and Young People’s Cancer Coalition (CYPCC). 

The strength and experience of our Scientific Advisory Board members provides Friends of Rosie with a strong and trusted insight into current scientific priorities in childhood cancer research.  

Our Board has links with many other research organisations and charities. This helps to ensure that we are effective in our research funding decision-making; we don’t duplicate efforts; and we prioritise on the right research areas.

Friends of Rosie joined forces with another like-minded charity, Megan’s Rose of Hope, to fund research into the use of a revolutionary new blood test to diagnose Ewing Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. In 1 in 4 children or young people with Ewing Sarcoma there is little chance of survival because the cancer has already spread by the time it is detected with present methods.

Hannah’s Willberry Wonder Pony Charity was established by talented horse rider, Hannah Francis, following her diagnosis with the aggressive form of bone cancer in 2015. A major part of Hannah’s dream for her charity was to support vital research into osteosarcoma, which usually develops in growing bones. Hannah established her charity in March 2016 before tragically losing her life later that year at the age of just 18 years old.
