In recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Ann Elviss hosted a charity afternoon tea party to fundraise for research.

The event, held at the end of September with family and friends, raised almost £500. Money which will go towards Friends of Rosie’s newest research projects later this year.

Our thanks go to Ann and everyone who attended and supported the charity afternoon tea fundraising event. Support like this makes a huge difference to projects we fund, helping find gentler and better treatments for children with cancer.

Ann’s grandson, Arthur, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) when he was just 16 months old. Thankfully, he is in remission now and is a robust and happy young man. But the family have seen and experienced first hand the harsh effects of current treatments. So much so, that Arthur’s mum, Katie, was inspired to become a Parent Trustee of Friends of Rosie early last year.
