My 16 year old son Will was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2009. Despite intensive chemotherapy as an inpatient and outpatient, numerous emergency admissions and a time in Intensive Care, Will has never once complained - always answering that "there's no point, it won't change anything." Will's love of sailing, shooting, cycling and horse riding has given him a goal and kept him going through some very tough times. He has desperately tried to keep up with his studies and is taking his GCSEs as planned. Will is still on maintenance chemotherapy but carries on living each day to its full and has recently raised £608.00 doing an abseil in aid of The Oncology Outpatient Department at Birmingham Children's Hospital. His next challenge is a parachute jump for Teenage Cancer Trust. Will would be a brilliant choice as a bearer of the Olympic Torch. Not only is he a keen sportsman, he's a truly inspirational young man who although facing the horrendous challenge of Cancer can smile, keep his sense of humour and teach us all very valuable lessons. Will is great fun to be with and this is reflected in the huge number of friends and admirers he has - of all ages!!!
