We were deeply saddened to hear that popular, acclaimed author Jackie Collins OBE passed away from breast cancer on Saturday, September 19.
The charity is honoured that Jackie, who was adored by family, friends and floods of fans has asked for donations to be made in lieu of flowers. Currently, we do not know the amount, but every penny will help Penny Brohn continue to reach the thousands of people needing our support.
Jackie, who was diagnosed over six years ago, did not let the disease define her and carried on living to the full even near the end of her life.
Her daughters’ statement
“Our mother was aware that Penny Brohn UK nurtured the mind, body and spirit of people living with cancer, and helped them before, during and after treatment. She was determined to not be defined by the illness and wanted others to have access to the kind of support that could offer them a similar opportunity.”
