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.

How sad Ruth, a young life, full of promise, cut short by this terrible disease. I hope this journey brings comfort to her family.

I've not known the story about Rose though I gathered it was something like this. I also didn't realize it was just a short time ago that she passed away.

Oh Ruth...stories like this are such terrible heartbreakers. We cannot ever understand WHY one so young would be taken so soon, but I do believe that God in Heaven has His reasons and one day, we shall understand....
