This is Sumner Malik, Durham and Cleveland Squash is supporting this brave young man. Sumner has been diagnosed with DIPG. A high grade malignant primary tumour has attached to his brain stem and is highly resistant to chemotherapy.
Sumner is undergoing radiotherapy whilst still attending tournaments and playing squash with his 5 brothers and sisters. (He is one of triplets). The family are hoping to take Sumner to America for treatment, the only hope they have of some future for him. As this will cost approximately £80,000, the squash community is raising money.
Weekend of 9/10 December Squashathons will be taking place all around the country. Durham and Cleveland will be participating which will be hosted by Sedgefield Squash Club.
All will be welcome, men, ladies, juniors.
T-shirts and wristbands are available to buy – every penny counts. Any fundraising ideas appreciated.Please keep watching this space, further details will be posted as they become available.
