Mum Samantha, Dad Ben and Jessica Rose

Every now and then something comes into your life that makes you drop everything and help. We all left school and our lives have been very different so far- but yesterday a group of us came together to discuss ways of helping our friend Sam’s daughter, Jessica Rose, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour in March.

We vowed to help Sam and her partner Ben, who live in Beaconsfield, to raise the ¬£25,000 needed to take Jess to America in August for proton radiotherapy treatment that could save her life. To read more about Jess and why we are raising the money then join her group and become a supporter of ‘Jessica Rose Foundation.’ OR email jessicarosefoundation@gmail.com

We have made our first plan but we need help.

On July 24th we are holding Jessica’s Family Fun Day! If any of you can lend a hand on the day we would be so grateful. We need:

  • Cake makers, cupcakes, big sponges and anything yummy
  • Raffle prizes of any wonderful variety
  • Donated vouchers
  • A bouncy castle
  • A BBQ master
  • Dancers
  • Singers
  • Face painters
  • And anything to make the day fab!

We will select a venue this week and advertise from there…but if you have any ideas that will make a great day – please come forward!

Jess needs all of you, and fast, so please be willing, we have 4 weeks to make this special day happen. Please ask as many of your friends to pop along to the day and show a little support and generosity for a few hours.

Thank you!!!

Jessica’s story appeared on the front page of The Beaconsfield Advertiser on Thursday and as a result, Dad Ben will be speaking about Jess’s appeal on BBC Counties radio this week! For when see Jessica’s page in the next few days.
