Lancashire Telegraph: Ribble Valley MP’s praise for cancer teen Ribble Valley MP’s praise for cancer teen

RIBBLE Valley MP Nigel Evans has tabled an Early Day Motion praising an ‘inspirational’ teenage cancer sufferer.

Stephen Sutton who, despite suffering for the last four years with terminal bowel cancer, has managed to raise almost £3,000,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Stephen, 19, Staffordshire, was diagnosed with bowel cancer aged 15 and started raising funds for the charity.

Mr Evans said: “I had the privilege of meeting Stephen at the Kids Count Awards last year.

“He is a remarkable individual and his bravery and fundraising are a lesson to all of us.

“My admiration for Stephen is immense and I do hope that his fundraising exploits that have raised the profile of bowel cancer mean that more people can be screened and treated for the disease.”
