About the Appeal
The Appeal is the legacy of the late inspirational Jane Tomlinson CBE who made headlines worldwide by completing a series of seemingly impossible challenges – after being told she had incurable cancer and just months to live.
Jane, a mum-of-three, defied her diagnosis to take part in countless marathons and famously rode across Europe and the USA to raise funds for charity.
The Appeal aims to carry on Jane’s extraordinary achievements by continuing to support children to be happier and healthier and improve the lives of people living with cancer.
