Almost £20K raised in memory of Jess Macqueen, who passed away in October 2019

Jess Macqueen passed away from rhabdomyosarcoma just 5 months after her diagnosis

The support from Jess’ community in Watford has been absolutely astonishing. Donations to Alice’s Arc were made in lieu of flowers at her funeral, local businesses have run fundraising initiatives and the school she attended has also held events to raise money. So far all of these efforts have raised almost £20K for the charity.

We are so thankful for this support in our fight against rhabdomyosarcoma. We do not want families to have to go through the heartbreak of watching their children suffer and die from cancer. All the funds raised help research teams to investigate new treatments and deepen our understanding of the disease
