Following months of blood tests an MRI scan in July 2020 showed Tim to have a large cancerous tumour on his adrenal gland that had metastasised to the lungs. Following the removal of the adrenal gland, a biopsy showed Tim to have an unclassified sarcoma known as an EWSR1 Crem Fusion. This is a ‘rarer than rare’ cancer with only a handful of recorded cases in the world.
Tim had several rounds of unsuccessful chemotherapy and in March 2021 he was told the most unthinkable. There was to be no further treatment and his life was limited to days or weeks.
On May 14th 2021 our beautiful son and brother to Georgie, Tim aged 23 died. A life full of so much promise cut tragically short.
