Jessicas Sarcoma Awareness
Who we are
Jessica Robson was diagnosed with alveolar sarcoma cancer on the 1st of November 2010 aged 14 after finding a slight lump in her right thigh on a holiday in August the same year. After a hard 3 and half year battle with cancer she passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning of the 16th of May 2014 aged 18.
Jess always loved raising money and with all the fund raising she has done in the past 3 years, as a family we have raised over £28,000 for a number of charities. Jess loved when people brought presents in for Christmas and Easter eggs in for the patients.
We (Jessica's sister and parents) are keeping Jessica's inspiration alive by keeping her fundraising going but now in her name. We have set up the charity 'JESSICA'S SARCOMA AWARENESS', in the memory of Jess.
We have a lodge (Jess's Dream) based in West Northumberland where families who have been affected by cancer can go for respite and to make special memories as a family.
Some of the money raised will go to teenage cancer trust (a charity closest to Jessica's heart), Sarcoma UK (as jess always wanted to help beat cancer) and the rest will stay in the charity which will then go towards presents for the other children in hospital fighting this awful disease. For example, Easter, Christmas and so on and financing days out for the patients and their families. Jessica was never selfish, always smiling and never gave up. She never deserved this awful disease but I want Jessica's spirits to live on.
