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 too.
Lauren left a lasting impression on everybody she met during her battle against cancer, and her story is both uplifting and heart breaking at the same time. She is one half of the inspiration of LARF, you can read her story here.
Despite fighting an uphill battle against cancer, Rosie always managed to raise money for charity no matter how ill she was. Rosie is the other half of the inspiration behind LARF and you can read about her positive time on this planet here.
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.
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 start LARF, not only to honour their memories but also to help those who are in the same situation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
