November 2008 Update
After another crazy 3 days Andrew and Natalya completed their second BritBallRun adventure and after a very close 'race' were crowned the 2008 champions!!
Thanks to generous donations from their supporters they surpassed their £10,000 target in 2008 and the New Year saw them set a new goal of £15,000!
Over the coming months you will be able to follow their progress and find out about the many different events that you could take part in by visiting...
Andrew and Natalya would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to all those who have supported them over the past 2 years and who have helped to keep Rose's memory alive...YOU ARE ALL STARS!!!
After a foundation year at the Liverpool Hope University, Rose embarked on a 3 year degree course in Jewellery Design.
Before her course started Rose fell ill and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Tests also proved she had a benign Grade 2 brain tumour. A decision was made to leave the tumour alone, treat the epilepsy that it was causing and allow Rose to complete her degree.
In January 2006, on her 22nd birthday, Rose got engaged to her long-term boyfriend, Steve.
After 3 years of very hard work, Rose graduated with a BDes (Hons) in October 2006.

In June 2006 Rose's symptoms worsened and she underwent a 7 hour operation to remove the tumour. Further examination showed that it was now a Grade 4 tumour - Glioblastoma Multiforme.
Rose underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy but, sadly, just 5 months after surgery and following a short stay in hospital Rose passed away on Saturday 11th November 2006.
