Charity Tandem Skydive in aid of LARF Cornwall
Supporting teenagers and young adults in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly undergoing cancer and leukaemia treatment.
LARF stands for Lauren & Rosie’s Fund and was set up in memory of two very special girls, Lauren Hoare & Rosie Howis, who formed a unique bond as they battled cancer together. Lauren was 17 and Rosie 16 when they lost their battles. As their families, we know only too well how difficult it is for teenagers and their families to go through this life changing journey and to come out the other side.
This is a difficult time and LARF was set up to provide the support for these families. Our aim is to support Teenagers and Young People
(under the age of 24) who are receiving treatment for cancer or leukaemia, by providing psychological support, and social events to meet other patients and their families who are going through this awful experience.
We have funded improvements to specialist Teenager and Young Adult rooms on Lowen Ward and The Headland Unit at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske, Truro, to make it age appropriate. We will continue to update the rooms as needs change.
We have part funded a Clinical Psychologist based at The Cove Cancer Support Centre, Treliske and after donating to the construction of this building, we are pleased to use its facilities.
We work closely with the TYA Cancer Specialist Nurse and Play Specialist all based at Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske.
The girls would be proud of what LARF has done since it was formed in 2010, but there is more that we can accomplish and more young people to support.
