LARF, standing for Lauren and Rosie’s Fund, was set up in 2010 by the girls’ parents, who’d met each other throughout their daughters’ treatment. Lauren and Rosie’s friendship and ability to stay positive in the face of adversity led to the parents teaming up to.

LARF Cornwall cancer charity aims to improve facilities and increase support for teens and young adults facing cancer
2,555 teenagers and young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year, that’s 7 every day. With your support, we aim to make a difference. More than 80% of those who are diagnosed beat cancer. Sadly, Lauren and Rosie were not part of that 80% but their positivity and attitude throughout their fight left behind a legacy, and inspired their parents to set up the LARF cancer charity.
