Join the The Tom Prince Cancer Trust community
Tom Prince was born and lived in Portsmouth. He was a lovely boy, friendly, caring, polite, good fun and always a pleasure to be with. In February 2003 he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, an extremely rare form of bone cancer that develops in teenagers during their growth spurt. Over the next 18 months he fought bravely, time after time pulling himself through, determined to carry on and look forward to the future. Sadly, a brain scan confirmed yet more tumours and on 18th October 2004 Tom passed away at home, on the eve of his 16th birthday.
The Tom Prince Cancer Trust was set up to keep Tom's memory alive and to raise £1million to fund research into Osteosarcoma and stop others going through the same terrible experience as Tom and his family.
