The equestrian community and people all over the world have followed the story of 18 year old Hannah Francis, who had terminal bone cancer, and her mascot, Willberry The Wonder Pony. Together Hannah and Willberry inspired, amazed and brought tears to many eyes.
Hannah’s Willberry Wonder Pony Charity is her legacy, as is her mission to keep #kickingcancersbutt. Hannah was determined to ensure that no-one with a diagnosis of osteosarcoma in the future would have to endure the bleak prospects and archaic treatment regime that she had to go through and therefore the charity funds research into bone cancer, particularly osteosarcoma.
Hannah lived to ride and even during excruciatingly painful challenges she carried on and many took inspiration from her courage. Thanks to the generosity of so many people from within the equestrian community, Hannah fulfilled many items on her “bucket list”. With this in mind, and always thinking of others, she created “Willberry’s Wishes” as part of her charity, granting equine-related wishes to seriously ill people, bringing joy to others during the most difficult of times and creating memories forever.
