George’s Rockstars was set up in memory of 6 year old Gorgeous George. Our mission is to bring smiles to children in hospital starting with funding music therapy.

George’s Story

George was first diagnosed with leukaemia in November 2014 aged 22 months old. During his near 5 year battle he sadly relapsed 4 times and after having all the treatment there was available including high dose chemo, total body and cranial radiotherapy, bone marrow transplant and revolutionary CAR T Cell therapy, George passed away at home in August 2019 surrounded by his family.

George adored music and nature and had a huge zest for life and infectious smile and character. His family decided to start George’s Rockstars in his name to provide music therapy for children in hospital and bring smiles to children that spend too much of their childhood in hospital.

We became a registered charity in March 2020!

Amazing to see our friends Leo & Friends - Therapy Dogs and Lyndsey at their book signing at Waterstones today. A brilliant book about the difference an incredible woman and gorgeous dogs have made to some very brave children at Southampton Children’s Hospital. 🐾
