iCare Charity and HCIL partner to announce lead sponsorship of Katie Rose’s Journey Charity Ball

Katie Rose McKeown

iCare Charity and HCIL have partnered to announce their lead sponsorship of Katie Rose’s Journey Charity Ball on Friday, June 7 in the Armagh City Hotel.

Katie Rose was diagnosed with stage four high-risk neuroblastoma in March 2018.

She had developed a solid tumour in her abdomen. Her future is uncertain. Her family hope Katie Rose will be in remission at the end of frontline treatment, but in 40-50% of children diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, the cancer comes back.

Once it does the chances of long-term survival drop to less than 10%.

It means that Katie Rose’s family are raising funds in case she needs to access treatment not available on the NHS.

Speaking about Katie Rose’s Journey, iCare Co-founder Janine Smalls said: “The committee of volunteers behind Katie Rose’s journey are so dedicated to this campaign and have been absolutely fantastic in their efforts, we wanted to help where we could.”

There will be a booklet at the Katie Rose Charity Ball on June 7 which businesses can sponsor a full or half page advert.

If you would be interested in sponsoring an advert, or know any businesses that would like to sponsor an advert (prices are below) or if you would like to get involved in fundraising for Katie Rose’s Journey please get in touch:

Full page advert – £150
Half Page Advert – £100
