Pass The Smile for Ben Crowther Fund

Why we need your help

Pass The Smile for Ben Crowther is a Special Named Fund at CCLG, raising funds for research into rhabomyosarcoma, and supportive care including nutrition and complementary therapies.


Ben was diagnosed with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in June 2018. He gained his superhero wings in June 2019 and now flies high with the birds and the angels. He stays with us forever in our hearts.

Before diagnosis he was a bright, happy, cheeky boy. He remained the same despite the ongoing brutal effects of his chemotherapy treatment. Even when first diagnosed he wanted to Pass his Smile to other people to cheer them up. Pass The Smile was born.

Treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma has not advanced for decades and survival rates are shockingly poor. As his parents, we believe it shouldn't be like this and more research into better, kinder, targeted treatments is desperately needed. In Ben's name we want to fundraise to try and help achieve this.  

From this page you can make a donation to Pass The Smile for Ben, or start a fundraising page to collect sponsorship for your event. 100% of your fundraising or donation will support research into rhabdomyosarcoma.
