Emma tragically lost her son, Frank, to osteosarcoma in June of last year. During a gruelling eighteen months of treatment, 

Including chemotherapy and two limb salvage operations, Frank was simply amazing. He wanted to live his life to the full, and even when the diagnosis became terminal, he worked through his bucket list with smiles and laughter. He was cracking jokes right till the end, until he was no longer able to speak. His friends and family try to take a little of his incredible attitude to life forward, to honour him. To seize the day, to be braver, to be kinder. To Be More Frank.

Emma, and her family were terribly grateful to everyone who gave Frank, and them, love and support during such an unbearable time. One of the most practical things was financial support.  Numerous journeys to Birmingham Children's Hospital, food, fuel and hotel stays, not to mention one parent giving up work to care and the other just limping on in theirs. 

Therefore, Emma set up the #BeMoreFrank fund to help other families faced with the unbearable reality of their child having a cancer diagnosis. Under the umbrella of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Charity, all money raised in Frank's name is ringfenced to provide grants to families during their child's cancer journey.  

Initially the fund was set up to provide grants to families in just Herefordshire.  Since then, because of the incredible efforts of fundraisers, the area of support has been extended to the neighbouring counties of Powys and Monmouthshire.  Most recently Worcestershire has also been included.

To win the £5,000 pounds would be absolutely amazing and it would help provide even more families with essential support in such awful circumstances.
