Things have changed…


On 10th March this year – 2106 – I was diagnosed with inoperable throat cancer.  I’m now preparing to begin six weeks of intensive radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

In order to allow me to understand my illness better, and to help people who may find themselves in a  similar situation, I’ve started a blog to chart my battle against this horrific disease.

The blog is at www.tommyVcancer.com  Please visit if you can.

What people are saying about Tommy…

“Thank you for a brilliant day! I had a great time but most importantly all our students enjoyed the time they spent with you, be it your talk or the writing workshops.

It was amazing to see some usually disaffected boys being so completely engaged in writing and being creative. I was so impressed with the way that you, almost imperceptibly, changed your delivery style to address the kind of students in front of you so that all were engaged and involved. Your style and manner with the students was brilliant.

The children, so I’ve been told by other members of staff, were buzzing about your visit so I thank you again for all that you did with our students.”
