Guy's Story

When age 17, Guy felt pain in his knee whilst playing hockey.
A doctor assumed it was growing pains or a sports injury.
After 5 months of increasing pain and swelling he finally had a plain x-ray.
It was bone cancer, specifically osteosarcoma. Intensive, gruelling treatment began immediately.
A year later Guy was living life to the full at university, having fun with his friends and travelling.
He had been so shocked that there was no funding for vital research that he took on amazing sponsored personal challenges.
Sadly the cancer returned. He died age 23 determined that progress should be made for others.Guy’s charity aims to raise funds for vital research and to promote awareness of this devastating cancer which mostly affects teenagers and young adults. Read More
