Alex was a fun loving, popular, sport loving, fit, 16 year old when he died of a High Grade Glioma in May 2011.

Our world collapsed on March 23rd 2010 when he came home from a day of football at school and commented on having a numb arm and leg. Accident and Emergency queried MS but within a week the diagnosis was even more devastating. He fought bravely for a year from the original diagnosis, enduring surgery, 6 weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy with humour and courage. We intend for the funds raised in Alex's name to be channelled into Brain Tumour research, especially in teenagers. Cricketer, Darren Gough has been particularly supportive of Alex's fund.
