The HoneyRose Legacy – How Did It Come To Be?
The HoneyRose Foundation was founded by Lynn Duffy in memory of three of her close friends, who died of terminal illnesses.
- Nicola Honey died of a rare Ovarian Cancer aged 21.
- Karen White died aged 27 after her battle with a Brain tumour.
- Rose Clark fought Lung Cancer until she was 57.
This is their legacy.
