TheRockinR charity aims to provide fun and smiles to children spending time on hospital wards. We know whilst Reece was in hospital, wheeling in a Mobile Gaming Unit would have meant the world to him, offering a welcome distraction, helping to interact, communicate and engage. it would have brought a big smile to his face. We founded TheRockinR to help children and families who are plunged into these situations.
It is my passion to start where Reece left, to move this charity forward and share the same resilience, bravery, courage and determination that Reece showed me – To inspire, motivate, encourage and remain positive throughout the darkest of times.
Together I truly believe we can achieve this goal. Any donation large or small will make a difference.

Why We Need Your Help
Brain Tumour Research - Facts
Too many people are being faced with the devastating diagnosis each year – every two hours, someone is diagnosed with a brain tumour in England.
Brain tumours are the chief cause of cancer deaths in children and young people. In 2015, the number of children dying from cancer was 194, with brain tumours taking 67 young lives and leukaemia 46.
At the current rate of spend, it could take 100 years for brain cancer to catch up with developments in other diseases and find a cure.
In 2015, £8,759 was spent on leukaemia research for each death, compared with only £1,858 for brain tumours. Brain tumour research represents just 1.37% of national spend on cancer.
Every 9 days a child in the UK is diagnosed with DIPG
1 child DIES every 3 days from a brain tumour in the UK
