Sadie Rose loses battle against Neuroblastoma


At 5.15pm today (25 June 2012) Sadie Rose passed away, losing her fight with the childhood cancer Neuroblastoma.

On 8th August 2009 Sadie Rose was born, but by October 2010 aged just 14 months old, had been diagnosed with the childhood Cancer called Neuroblastoma.

Following an appeal in Knaresborough and Harrogate, she managed to secure a place at an America Hospital for treatment not available in the UK.

Sadie was treated at the  Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York in January although the treatment did not go to plan and returned to the UK.

During early June the family were told that no further treatment options were available to Sadie and that the family should enjoy the remaining time with her.

Our thoughts are with Sadie’s parents at this difficult time.






  1. Such sad news. Rest in Peace Sadie Rose- such a brave little fighter. Thinking of her family at this terribly sad time.

  2. Such devastating news. My thoughts go out to the family of this beautiful and amazing little girl.

  3. Such devastating news for you all. She bravely fought her battle, our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends. The Hanslows

  4. such a tragically short life, what a cruel, cruel illness, God rest little sweetheart xx

  5. In a world where all we do is morn about every little thing
    Here is a brave little girl who has had a short life but in that time has always had a smile on here face
    We should all be thankful for what we have for you never know what life will bring
    God bless Sadie you are now at peace
    You will never be forgotten little Angel

  6. Devastating news about a young girl who battled so hard. The support for her was phenomenal to see. In Knaresborough I see that flowers are already being placed on the memorial in the market square for her.

  7. So sorry to hear of Sadie’s news. We have just recently lost our 10 year old daughter to Glioblastoma Multiforme (brain tumour), and know exactly what the family must be going through. Our thoughts are with you. Rest assured that Sadie is no longer in pain and is in a far better world now. Your little angel will be watching over you now and forever more.

  8. We arrived in Knaresborough from Ireland in January and very quickly learned about this local baby named Sadie Rose who was fighting cancer. I was blown away by the whole communities efforts to raise funds and we attended some fund raising events. We didnt know her,but we felt we did in some small way, and I hoped and prayed hers would be a success story and one day we would see her walking down the street in Knaresborough. My children were also ver upset to hear she lost her battle. The children in my kids school all took her into their hearts and I was amazed by the efforts of some of these children to raise funds in their own little ways. Sadie Rose was loved. My thoughts and prayers go to little Sadie Rose, who is now an Angel in Heaven and to her family at this very sad time.
