Thomas's Dream Story

Thomas's dream come true

Thomas has a high grade Burkitt’s lymphoma.  He is currently undergoing high dose chemotherapy and this is an intensive regime.

Burkitt lymphoma  is a rare type of lymphoma that affects children and adults. It's more common in males. The condition develops when the body makes abnormal B-lymphocytes – a type of white blood cell that fights infection. The abnormal lymphocytes build up in one area of the body and form a tumour.

Thomas’s dream was to see his favourite football team Manchester United. 

Manchester United Football Club were fantastic and invited Thomas and his Dad to go on one of their Dream Days.  

They were part of an exclusive group that watched the players train. 

Thomas said “Would just like to say thank you so much for making my dream come true. It was the best day of my life by far and always something I've always wanted to do. When I got cancer I never thought it would ever happen and I'm so grateful. I met all the players and got my shirt signed by them all. Thank you so much for that. That is now in a big frame on my bedroom wall. Thank you so much”
