Dear friends, thank you all so much for your wonderful support financially and physically and emotionally over the last few months. As most of you will be aware now the beautiful Laura Anderson Markle passed away peacefully on 2nd January 2013 after a brief but furious fight with Cancer. Nearly 300 of you turned up at her celebration on Friday 4th January, which is a true testimony to how loved both Laura and her Husband Ian are. The outpouring of love and support was and is truly staggering, words cannot express the gratitude felt by Laura and Ian in their most challenging hour. The fund will now be brought to a close. Thank you all so much for digging deep and supporting a friend in need. By coming together and working hard we are a stronger unit and when good people do good things then badness will not prevail. Laura lives on every day in our thoughts and in our prayers; you can guarantee she is in Heaven right now gently suggesting to God how he might do this or he might do that... and when she's not busy straightening heaven out for the better, you can be assured that she will be watching over you. Thank you all again, you are all truly inspirational. STEVE THOMAS.

Huge hank you to the fantastical Brett Lance and Crystal Bailey. Another smack down on Cancer. The support has been wonderful and both Ian & Laura are humbled by your love and generosity. Looks like you two are expecting a new arrival in the new year (either that or Crystal has been enjoying too much Christmas Pudding...) congratulations guys.... You know "Steve" or "Stephanie"are both excellent names for a baby...... Did you know it means "the crowned one or the king....." Ha ha. Really well done you two on the soon to be newly born and thank you so much for your generosity. Xx

Wow! The Christmas cheer just keeps giving. The beautiful Tom and Tara McGrath have rocked up and delivered a sucker punch to Cancer, part of the Belleville Massif. Thank you so much guys, so generous of you to give to Laura on Christmas Day. You are heading away on your honeymoon soon, we hope you have a fantastic time (Tom, I'd start doing lower back exercises now if I were you mate..... Helps with .....er.....carrying Tara over the threshold....) well done you two, very kind. Xx

Welcome to the support site for Laura Anderson Markle. You will be aware by now that Laura has been given the horrific news that she has stage 4 primary liver cancer.


This is made all the more tragic in that she is of course only 30 years of age, a beautiful, funny and adventurous young woman. Moreover, she was only married to the love of her life, Ian Markle, in June 2012.

Having recently returned from a beautiful belated honeymoon in Italy and Serbia, she was greeted by this news and warned that time may not be on her side.

Due to the very nature of this aggressive disease Laura has not worked since October, creating extra burden and stress. She will be undergoing sessions of Chemotherapy, which will themselves also make her feel ill and unwell as they not only target the bad cells but the good ones as well.

Groups all over the world are now galvanizing in the name of Laura Markle; planning benefit dances & parties, sports events, personal arduous challenges like mountain hikes and marathons and painting portraits and making personal jewelry for non-profit.

You are here because you want to do something and possibly don't know what to do. Whilst, the events that are taking place are a fantastic way to raise awareness and show love, the biggest thing we can do for Laura is donate to make the next chapter of her life as comfortable and worry free as possible, any excess funds will be given to a charity or hospital of Laura's choosing.

We have an initial target of £7000, however, i know that her friends and family are a generous bunch and i am positive we can smash the £10,000 barrier together.

I asked Ian Markle to tell me what Laura means to him, here is what he said:

You really never know how much someone means to you, until you think of your life without them.

Who would have thought, four months after the happiest day of our lives, doctors would tell us that our time together could be limited. 

Laura is my friend, my companion, my love. Laura makes me feel invincible, she makes me want to be a better man. I can't imagine my world without Laura beside me.

Please dig really deep and give what you can, let us together show them how much we love them and care for them. 

We will thank you personally, via facebook or via e mail.

Thank you for visiting, please tell your friends.

N.B: As a rough guide £10 Sterling = 16 USD / CAD / AUD or 13 EUR.

Please be aware that 5% of your donation pays for this site and around 3% pays for the secure Pay Pal account being used. We need to pay for services provided. Doing it this way keeps things safe and secure. These surcharges have been included in the "reward" costings above and the painting cost includes P & P from France.

THANK YOU.
