Every day, 127 children* in the UK face the death of a parent.
Currently very little pre-bereavement support exists for families facing a terminal cancer diagnosis. Donate today to help families facing grief.
Could help us provide a family with a resource to enable parents to talk to their children about their terminal diagnosis, grief, death and dying.
Could provide a session with our Family Support Team, where parents are given pre-bereavement support and guidance or provide a GP practice with an information pack to improve the diagnosis of a non-smoking lung cancer.
Could help us train a cancer or palliative care professional through our RSF Training Programme, to help them better support parents to talk to their children about what’s to come.

”“The idea of setting up the foundation came up with Ruth in the last few months of her life. Ruth desperately wanted to help those affected by this terrible disease and she had a very strong sense of charity – in the broadest sense – of helping others less fortunate than ourselves”.Sir Andrew StraussRSF Founder & Ruth’s Husband
