Jessie's Fund

Jessica George was lively, bright and musical, and just nine years old when she was diagnosed with a rare and inoperable brain tumour in December 1993.

Jessie’s Fund was established to meet the cost of Jessie's treatment and was named by Jessie herself.  Unfortunately, Jessie died in May 1994 – less than six months after her diagnosis.

Jessie’s parents, musicians Lesley Schatzberger and Alan George, decided that Jessie’s Fund should become a charity dedicated to helping seriously ill and disabled children through the creative and therapeutic use of music: it was registered as such in 1995. Based in York, Jessie’s Fund helps children all over the UK.
