Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : May 16th 2014 Contents A teenager with cancer who touched the hearts
of many in the United Kingdom with his tireless
fund-raising efforts died Wednesday at age 19,
his mother said via Facebook.
It is news that will sadden many supporters won
over by Stephen Sutton’s mix of determination,
generosity and good humour in the face of his ter-
While he lost the battle to stay alive, he achieved
a remarkable feat: Having set himself the challenge
of raising some US$17,000 for a teenage cancer
charity, he ultimately inspired over US$5.4 million
On his Web site, Stephen’s Story, he tells how
he was first diagnosed with cancer in 2010, at age
Dying teen’s bucket list to raise money
“In a weird way, I see my first cancer diagnosis
as a good thing. It was a huge kick up the backside.
It gave me a lot of motivation for life.”
He created a “bucket list” on Facebook of 46
things he wanted to do before he ran out of time.
“Some things on my bucket list include sky div-
ing. Crowd surfing in a rubber dinghy. Playing
drums in front of a huge crowd. I ended up doing
it live at Wembley. Hug an animal bigger than me.”
But, he says, as he checked off each item, some-
thing else happened.
“Since starting the bucket list, I’ve had people
come up to me and offer to raise funds for me. To
go on holiday or tick off a new item on my bucket
list. But I’ve actually refused. And decided to give
the money to charity instead.”
That decision led to a stupendous fundraising
effort that won him the backing of celebrities and
the general public, despite doctors telling him in
November 2012 that his illness was terminal.
On the Facebook page he set up to run that effort,
Stephen’s Story, he describes himself as a “teenager
with incurable cancer just trying to enjoy life as
much as possible, while raising funds for charity
to help others.”
And when his condition took a turn for the worse
this spring, the news made national headlines.
After rallying briefly, he was readmitted to a hos-
pital Sunday with breathing difficulties.
With typical fortitude, the last post he wrote
said: “Fingers crossed the issue will be resolved
and that I’ll be out of hospital soon, I’ll keep you
all updated with how I’m getting on.”
