The disorder is called Prader-Willi Syndrome. Rosie and her family have been incredible throughout her short life and as a result Rosie has grown into a happy and effervescent young lady despite having to live with a disorder for which there is no known cure.
The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association, based in Derby came to the notice of the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) in 2019 which approved a grant of £15,000 to the charity. Since then Rosie’s plight has been highlighted to the members of Hawton Mark Lodge No.100 in Plymouth where she lives. They decided that they should continue helping the charity who have supported the family so well and have raised a further £200 which was recently presented by the Worshipful Master of the lodge, W.Bro. John Pritchard, to enable the charity to continue the nursing and research into this terrible genetic disorder.
