Our family’s motivation, support, and involvement with the Rosie May Foundation
By Alice Burchfield
Having first met Mary and Graham at Musical Theatre High’s Charity Performances a few years ago, it was easy to see what exceptional individuals they were. From the moment they started telling their story to students, friends, and family at the Recreation Rooms in Leighton Buzzard, I felt compelled to support the legacy for their daughter Rosie May. Their daughter’s death resonates with so many, whether it be the hurt and grief they experienced or the passion that their 10- year- old daughter had for the performing arts, it touched everyone. 5 minutes later, I knew this was going to be a story I would never forget. Without their visit to Musical Theatre High! I would never have been able to hear from the founders themselves and the incredible opportunity they have created from every parent’s worst nightmare.
