A local hero called Freddie was unfortunately diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer in November 2019 at the age of 6. It's called Ewing's Sarcoma and is an aggressive cancer that creates tumours in the bone and soft tissue that can spread to anywhere in the body, very quickly. Freddie has faced 8 months of chemo, countless blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, blood boosting injections, radiotherapy and side effects. Freddie has been an awesome fighter and is a huge inspiration to so many Freddie Fans.
Freddie's heroic journey inspired Stuart to run the London Marathon 2021, to raise money for the development of more treatment and immunotherapy to allow children like Freddie to have a chance at fighting this awful disease.
