Alexander Albiston Fundraising Site

This website has been setup to help promote the fundraising activities for charities associated with the treatment and research of teenage cancers and in particular, bone cancer. The site has been created in memory of Alexander Albiston. 'Alex' was an inspirational young man who was diagnosed with bone cancer when he was just 17 years old, went on to achieve top A level grades and a place at Cambridge University whilst battling the disease in his last year in the school sixth form. Alexander sadly died aged 18 in March 2010, but his story has inspired others to continue to raise funds to support teenage cancer charities.
