Blogging For Rose
ROSE EMMA McGILL
26th January 1984 – 11th November 2006
Today Rose’s Father, Andrew, and his best friend, Natalya, are setting off on a 3 day, 1,000 mile fundraising event in memory of Rose.
Right from the start it has been their intention to use their fundraising activities as a way of sharing Rose and her beautiful smile with all who read about her.
Rose was an up and coming designer and was featured at the New Designers Exhibition in London in June 2006. Sadly, that same month the family was devastated when Rose was diagnosed with a Grade 4 malignant brain tumour. Following surgery to remove the tumour treatment was started straight away and on 26th October 2006 Rose graduated with honours from Liverpool Hope University. Just two weeks later Rose was admitted to hospital and sadly passed away on 11th November 2006.
As Andrew and Natalya navigate around the UK, bloggers across the world are coming together to help them share Rose’s story and her wonderful smile.
I have played a very very small part in raising money for this, doing the Easter Egg Hunt and displaying the fundraising widget, they have done brilliantly and i hope they reach their target!
The website is www.rosemcgill.co.uk
and the fundraising page is www.justgiving.com/rosemcgill
So on Saturday the 25th of August think of Rose :)
