After a foundation year at the Liverpool Hope University, Rose embarked on a 3year 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. After 3 years of very hard work Rose was featured at the 2006 New Designers Exhibition and graduated with a BDes (Hons) in Silversmithing & Jewellery in October 2006.
In June 2006 Rose's symptoms worsened and she underwent a 7hour 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. We are hoping to raise money for Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology, Wirral, where Rose received her radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
