I am raising Money for Teenage Cancer Trust as my son Archie has greatly benefited from this Charity in the last 8 months.

Archie was diagnosed in October 2022 with Ewans Sarcoma a rare Bone Cancer and has an inoperable tumour on his spine.

This was devastating for him and us as a family and the last 8 months have been awful for him being in and out of hospital on a weekly basis. Archies treatment plan is brutal with 14 rounds of intense chemotherapy as well as 6 weeks in Manchester at The Christies centre having Proton Beam Therapy a type of targeted radiotherapy directly to the tumour which Archie completed at end of April. Archie has 2 more cycle of chemotherapy to get through.

Teenage Cancer Trust are just one charity that do everything they can to try and keep teenagers going through these awful experiences. They have dedicated support workers that not only offer someone to talk to but also organise trips, pizza nights and social get togethers whilst in and out of hospital with other teenagers going through Cancer. They understand teenagers and their needs and try where possible to bring much needed joy and a listening ear. They have been invaluable to Archie with staff like Connor up here at Edinburgh Sick Kids and also Angie and Steve at The Christies centre in Manchester. They really are worth their weight in Gold.

On the 23rd of June myself, friends , Archie good pal Rory and other friends of Archie will play 4 rounds of golf in one day to try and raise vital funds and awareness of Teenage Cancer Trust.

We will start at 4am at Castle Park Golf Club wplaying 18 holes moving onto Haddington Golf club at about 8.30am followed by a trip to Gifforfd Golf Club at 1.30pm and finishing back at Castle Park at about 5pm. All in all about 16 hours of golf covering about 20 miles. Let's pray the good weather holds up or it may not be as much fun dripping wet for 16 hours!
