Hi my name is Marcus Richmond , I'm 11 years old and suffering from a rare bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. This is a very life threatening and one of the worst sarcomas. It's in my upper right arm , I've also have secondary cancer in both lungs. Now they have just found I have kidneys stones in my left kidney.
At the moment I'm going through a very strong chemotherapy regime which is taking its toll on me but my Mum and Dad are also looking into alternative medicine and treatment which very expensive.
I will be going through surgery very soon which might mean my right arm being amputated if it cannot be saved and my to be lungs operated on to remove most of the cancer, if possible the stones removed from my kidney.
Our son Marcus is such a kind hearted boy, He's liked by all his friends, he is funny , witty and likes to joke around when he isn't so very poorly.
He loves playing computer games and is into You Tube plus all The You Tubers particularly Dan TDM.
He used to love going out a lot . He's been in the Beavers , Cubs and now the Scouts and has a mean punch and a strong kick in his karate lessons.
He misses his old life, we just hope one day we can get him back there.
The funds will been used to aid Marcus on his long recover and alternative treatment to give him the best quality of life as long as possible.
Thank you for reading about our very special and precious son.
