Sam's Fund is a Special Fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust raising vital funds for life-saving research into primary bone cancer.


I was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma a rare type of bone cancer. I am currently. After months of chemotherapy and a full knee replacement I am now halfway through my fight against cancer.

It’s been a really tough journey so far and incomparable to anything else I have done or achieved in my life. 

After a successful surgery and the cancer responding to the chemo I am now technically in remission with all the cancer removed. However, I am having another few months of chemo to ensure that all the cancer cells are gone.

Currently I am having to learn to walk again and regain full movement in my right leg which is an experience like no other. After the surgery waking up then finding your leg doesn’t work and you have to train the muscles to work was a shock 😅.

I have 3 more months of chemotherapy then 6 more months of immunotherapy then I should be fully recovered and cancer free.

I decided to raise funds along with the help of friends and family for the bone cancer research trust as the journey I have been through has shown me that there are those less fortunate with their treatment. Seeing a 14 year old who has lost his arm but is still smiling playing his Ipad and hearing of those being given life expectancies instead of end of treatment dates will truly break your heart . Without the work of the bcrt I would not have the curative diagnosis I have.

The Bone Cancer Research Trust are great at posting updates on where the money goes and what they get up to so checkout their website (I personally follow their facebook for updates). Unlike large cancer charities the donations make a huge difference and can clearly be correlated with research and progress.

The Bone Cancer Research Trust is dedicated to saving lives & improving outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer. Despite being small, they fund more research projects exploring primary bone cancer than any other organisation. Other large UK cancer research charities do not prioritise bone cancer patients, in 2019 just 0.028% of their research spend went to bone cancer – not even close to 1%! Last year alone, Bone Cancer Research Trust committed an incredible £807,824 to pioneering bone cancer research - to save lives!
