    Story

    This disease has already taken away Adam's ability to walk, if we don't find a successful treatment it could take a lot more. The tumour continues to grow and treatment options are running out.

    Adam Cuthbert is the life and soul of the party, always first on the dance floor or on stage drowning everyone out with his out of tune singing or close to the bone speeches. Everybody's life is better with Adam in it.

    In February 2016 he woke up with pain in his side and weakness in his legs. After rushing to hospital he was diagnosed with a tumour in his spinal cord.

    He had his 1st spinal surgery in March 2016 and a significant chunk of the tumour was removed, doctors said it was a low grade tumour and shouldn’t cause any problems now they’d removed the bulk of it. Adam asked his childhood sweetheart Katie - Jo to marry him and they started living life to the full thinking the tumour was behind them.

    However 7 months later the pain returned and he underwent his 2nd spinal surgery which was a great success and once again he walked away from a major operation. Just 3 weeks later the pain returned and Adam was once again rushed to hospital for emergency surgery to drain what doctors thought was a simple cyst on the tumour. This relatively simple procedure went wrong and complications during surgery meant Adam woke up with his right leg completely paralysed. He then spent two months in hospital having aggressive radiotherapy and chemotherapy to get the tumour under control. During this treatment Adam lost all mobility form the waist down - he hasn’t walked since the 30th December - but in true Cuthy style has attacked his rehab every day since coming out of intensive care.

    As things were starting to look up and Adam’s daily rehab started to show signs of paying off, doctors told him that the latest scan showed that the gruelling radiotherapy and chemotherapy has only slowed the tumour down and not killed it off completely.

      What a fantastic night last night at The Gable in Moorgate for the pub quiz. We raised £1,410 so thank you to everybody who made the night so incredible. Special thanks has to go to the exceptional quizmaster that was Sunil Ryan, keeping everybody entertained for a few hours! You truly have a hidden talent there, thanks mate! Congratulations to the winning team 'No Furkin Fones' who without the use of their phones scored 100% and congrats to the winner of heads & tails, Ed Forsyth. I'm sure the rugby boys helped polish off that bar tab for you.
