Lewis, aged 16, from Rochdale was diagnosed at 18 months old with Retinoblastoma in his right eye. He underwent chemotherapy and surgery to remove his eye. The family were devastated when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last year. The family were on such a roller-coaster of emotions and could not believe Lewis had to go through this again. Lewis has taken everything that has happened with a wonderful sense of humour. He studies hard, stays positive and continues to make his mum, Alison, very proud.
He has been through so much for his age, but he is a selfless and kind young man. Lewis and his family are very close, and they have supported each other throughout all his treatment. Lewis loves to game and was keen to have the latest Xbox. We were delighted that we could grant Lewis’s wish and hope he gets lots of fun from his games. It is a wonderful distraction from all that he has been through and from the demands of his college work.
We would like to thank Kevin Lovett, 41 Club Treasurer, for his support in presenting Lewis with his wish. He was thrilled to be involved.
