Rosie Sullivan

Rosie Sullivan’s support of the Melanoma Fund was inspired by her uncle, Steve Wilson’s experience with melanoma. Steve’s first diagnosis was in 2010 and second in 2017, and seeing what he went through, Rosie decided to do something positive, to prevent others from experiencing the same.

Since 2019, every May, which is Melanoma Awareness Month, Rosie has threaded UV colour-changing bead bracelets, selling them in the local community, with all donations going to the charity.  To date, Rosie has raised over £1,146 for the Melanoma Fund, and each year she improves her designs.

Rosie says, “My bracelets have special beads that change colour when UV rays hit them, providing a perfect reminder that you that you need to wear sunscreen and protect yourself from the sun! Melanoma runs in my family and in most cases is preventable, so I want to do all I can to educate others against this horrible cancer.”
