About Us

RACH Fund was created in 2004 by Rachel Anne Cecelia Higgins and her mother, Joanne Higgins; along with their family and many friends.  From its inception, it has embodied the tenacity and enthusiasm of its founders – Rachel who was fighting the battle of her life with esthesioneuroblastoma cancer, and her mother Joanne; and their family who fought the battle alongside her every step of the way.  Sadly for those who loved and knew Rachel, she lost her battle in August 2005 and graduated to Angel status.  However, her legacy has lived on through the RACH Fund Committee of family, friends and community members ~ and her goal to raise money to make a difference for those living with brain tumour cancer continues on.
