Always remembering


Adam was always smiling and brought sunshine into every room. He was a Wolves fan who won the hearts of everyone with his bravery. Adam passed away when he was five years old.

Adam’s story  

In May 2007, Adam was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.  

Scans showed he had tumours in his abdomen, bone marrow and over a third of his skull. Adam immediately began a course of treatment involving chemotherapy, a 14-hour operation to remove a tumour from his stomach, stem cell transplant, radiotherapy and oral chemotherapy. 

14 months later, specialists at Alder Hey Hospital declared Adam clear of neuroblastoma. He was able to join his elder brother Michael at their primary school in Newton, Merseyside. 

After being in remission for three months, parents John and Christine noticed a lump had appeared on Adam’s head. Tests revealed that his cancer had returned, and it had spread to his shoulder, thighs, and spine. 

After a consultation at a private clinic in London, the family raised £75,000 for pioneering treatments. Although his family searched worldwide for ground-breaking treatments, there was no cure for Adam’s cancer. 

Adam passed away peacefully in his sleep on 23rd July 2009.
