Rosie's Friends

Rosie’s Friends

There are lots of other children going through diagnosis and treatment for cancer right now. And too many have already lost their lives to this cruel disease.  

Like Rosie’s parents, we know that lots of you want to do something. To try to change the outlook for your child and other children with cancer. The key to finding cures and kinder, gentler treatments is research. That’s why we’ve created Rosie’s Friends. 

Who are Rosie's Friends?

Rosie’s Friends is a place where children, parents, 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.  

And you can be assured that the money raised will be pooled to create one central fundraising pot that will fund brand new research ideas that could be the difference for children in the future.  

Our research covers all aspects of childhood cancer and all types of cancers too. Our focus is on finding gentler and more effective treatments that have less devasting long term effects on our children’s health. We want all children with cancer to have the chance of a bright and healthy future. 

If you’d like to join Rosie’s Friends and honour your child, please get in touch todayinfo@friendsofrosie.co.uk or 07887 932293
