Jack, 1996-2016

January 17, 2018

Jack lost his brave fight to Rhabdomyosarcoma in July 2016 at the age of 20 years old. The following are  his own words…… 


My name is Jack. I’m 19 years old. I became ill last year whilst taking my A levels. After initial problems with the diagnosis, I was confirmed as having a type of soft tissue sarcoma ( Rhabdomyosarcoma). Initial treatments were grueling but positive. However, soon after treatments ended, the sarcomas came back hard. The doctors now tell me they can’t cure me. 


Sarcomas are relatively rare but are often the main cancers to affect teenagers like me. Many of my friends who are fellow patients also have this same illness.  I am determined to help research into sarcomas and am already taking part in one research project, but we need more funding. Research will help us better understand the causes and identify improved treatments, saving lives in the future. 


I’m a private person and it’s been a big decision for me to share this publically, but it’s the right thing to do. So please, please help. 


Please make a donation, share my appeal with as many people as you can, especially any businesses who can help. With your generosity, I might be able to make a difference. Help me to help others. 


Thank you,  




Jack’s legacy continues to live on  and through the efforts of his parents, who have helped form the 1000 faces of Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in the United Kingdom supporting research and allowing all affected by Rhabdo to participate.
