Team story

[p]Thank you for visiting our fundraising page for Sarcoma UK in memory of Tom Makin.[/p][p]Please view video below to hear more about Tom and the charity that need our help. [/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Y3fKzg_86RE?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]Having fought cancer twice before, the disease reoccurred in December 2018 and sadly Tom, at just 29 years old, died on 12th June 2019 from osteosarcoma. [/p][p]Tom was a Manchester City mad, music obsessed, stone island collector, Daddy to two beautiful daughters aged just 3 and 8 weeks old and the best friend to so many. [/p][p]Tom fought so hard during each cancer battle to beat the disease and wanted so much to be around to watch his girls grow up.[/p][p]Unfortunately osteosarcoma is difficult to treat and conventional treatment of this disease has not progressed in over 20 years. As a result of that many young adults, like Tom, are losing their lives to this awful cancer.[/p][p]Tom’s friends- Luke, Jack, Ryan, Ashleigh, Fliss and his wife Kirsty, will be running the London Marathon to raise vital funds for Sarcoma UK. The charity is dedicated to helping families through a sarcoma diagnosis and most importantly future pioneering treatment to try and extend the lives of people such as Tom.[/p][p]Tom was an amazing guy, kind, generous and full of life. He touched the lives of so many people and we hope that by raising money for Sarcoma UK, the team and Tom are able to help others in the future.[/p][p]Thank you so much for your support. We are so grateful.[/p][p]With love,[/p][p]Luke, Jack, Ryan, Ashleigh, Fliss and Kirsty [/p][p]X [/p]
