Leroys Story

After being diagnosed with sarcoma (a rare bone cancer) in 2013, which became terminal by 2015, Leroy Duffus decided he wanted to give something back.

With his experience in both the voluntary and statutory sectors, working with young people and adults, Leroy started to get involved with charities supporting individuals affected by cancer. He soon discovered the lack of local community charities supporting young people, especially those around the patient i.e. children of cancer patients, siblings, carers etc.

In 2017 Leroy decided to form a committee of friends and family who shared his vision: to work together to support young people affected by cancer.
