Remember you playing golf with Megan and you were always waiting to see if she had beat you.
Before 21-year-old Marcus’ life was cruelly interrupted by Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, he was working for his parents’ business in West Sussex and pursuing his passion for golf. Marcus’ mother, Keeley, said, “We discovered a lump on Marcus’ neck in December of 2016 and began going to doctors, but the possibility of cancer was dismissed several times before he was suddenly diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in June of this year”. Marcus’ whole life—including any long-term plans and social activities—was abruptly put on hold as he had to commence immediate chemotherapy.
Cancer treatment posed many challenges to Marcus, including the loss of his hair and the inability to socialise with his friends. If all goes well, Marcus will have his final treatment on November 27th, and a subsequent follow-up scan just before Christmas. Having his dream of playing in a pro-am golf tournament would be an incredible way to celebrate being cleared of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and would give him the boost and inspiration he needs to begin to rebuild his future plans and goals.
Marcus’ mother, Keeley, says, “Marcus is a very giving person who has never asked for much. But during this challenging time, Marcus’ enduring passion for his number one love- golf- has really kept him going”.
