I’m just picking him out as I know about it, but I’m aware that thousands of cancer sufferers face the same bit of news every year. In fact, every week.
You are going to die. Soon. And we’ve reached the point where there’s nothing we can do about it.
Sir Bobby announced the following recently:
â€œI have accepted what they have told me and I am determined to make the most of what time I have left. I have been fortunate to survive this long. It is thanks to my doctors and their dedication.
â€œMy condition is described as static and has not altered since my last bout of chemotherapy. They have arrested the growth of the tumours on my lungs.
â€œI am going to die sooner rather than later. But then everyone has to go sometime and I have enjoyed every minute.â€

Again, I’m just picking out one sufferer who I have a lot of respect for. I’ve lost relatives to cancer and statistically, I’ll lose more. So if you have a few spare quid that you’re not donating to Blue Dragon, then you could do worse than to forward it to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
