STEPHEN Sutton, 19, has terminal cancer.

He aimed to raise £10,000 for charity. It was one of his 46 bucket list of things to do.

Then he posted a “final thumbs up”. He said he was “nearing the end”. People noticed. And the donations began to skyrocket.



He wrote:

“I will continue fighting for as long as I can, and whatever happens next I want you all to know I am currently in a good place mentally and at ease with the situation. That’s it from me. But life has been good. Very good. Thank you to my mum and the rest of my family for everything. Thank you to my friends for being amazing. Thank you to my medical team for the hard work and effort they’ve continually they’ve put towards me. And thank you everyone else for sharing this wonderful journey with me.”

And when he saw that he’d raised over £1million:

“But seriously… Wow. Just wow. Thank you all so much :)”
