Macmillan Cancer Support
At Macmillan, we know cancer can affect everything. Your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But Macmillan is here to help people live life, no matter what. We give you the support you need to hold on to who you are and what’s important. But right now, we can’t reach everyone who needs us. Almost half of us will get cancer, and we need your help to make sure that people get the support they need to face one of the toughest fights of their lives. Life with cancer is still life -let’s help people live it. We are a charity registered in England and Wales (261017), Scotland (SCO39907) and the Isle of Man (604).
Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years. We fund research into more than 200 types of cancer from the most common, such as breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancers, to rare types of tumours and children’s cancers, we support groundbreaking science that benefits everyone.
Dogs Trust
Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

Frans Family and Friends's fundraising page

My page:

You will by now know that sadly Fran died peacefully in her sleep just before noon on July 10th in Bedford Hospital. Both I and Beau were with her.

Fran was a fighter and for more than twenty years had fought and won her battles with Breast Cancer but this last battle was more than she could deal with. 

We will all remember her infectious laugh, always a smile on her face.

Fran wished that anyone wanting to commemerate her passing with a gift, should make a donation to her prefered charities.  Money raised through this page will be shared between Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Dogs Trust.
