Story

[p]Tim Bacon left us on Friday 29[sup]th[/sup] April, as he embarks on his next big venture, but leaves us with a legacy nobody will forget.[/p] [p]Whether you were family, friend, colleague, supplier, customer or just someone who had the pleasure of encountering him, I’m sure you will agree, his charisma was infectious.  His presence was awesome.  His smile lit up even the darkest of days.[/p] [p]Tim fought the good fight against cancer for many years.  He lead his team with unwavering strength and commitment and was at work, doing what he loved, on the very day he lost his battle against this indiscriminate disease.[/p] [p]Tim was passionate about raising funds for the Melanoma Research Fund (MRF) which has supported many of the recent breakthroughs in the treatment of Melanoma.  They are continuing to make major progress in the treatment of melanoma, developing new drug treatments that are meaning more patients are likely to live longer. But there remains a lot more to do, and the MRF is integral to this. This will revolutionise the way cancer is prevented, diagnosed and treated worldwide.[/p][p][/p][p][span=font-size: x-small;][lt]img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Lk4NlFDjKW0/VzSL6d1g2qI/AAAAAAAABXI/9h-WaqcIjYspfuI-lIANpOt2vEW6It6LwCCo/s784/Jett1.bmp" alt="" width="677" height="413" /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p][p][/p][p]Tim’s beloved nephew, Jett Bacon, a pupil at Unsworth Primary School in Bury, passed away on Wednesday 4[sup]th[/sup] May, after being diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer in  March 2015.  Jett, aged 11, was cared for on Ward 84, the Paediatric Oncology Department at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.  The family would like to help raise funds towards state of the art chemotherapy infusion pump units.  When administering treatment to the children during the night, they will have less audible alarm systems enabling every child and parent to get much needed, uninterrupted sleep.  The main aim being to enhance the environment for the children during this difficult time.[/p] [p]Thank you for your kindness…[/p][p][span=font-size: x-small;] [/span][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][/p]
