Sad news. Stephen Sutton has died. He wasn't a sports figure or an actor or musician. He wasn't a politician or the head of a big company. He was a kid who was dealt a band hand in the game of life and he went on to play on helluva game!
"He was determined not to waste a minute, not to waste an hour or a day," British Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters. "I can hardly think of anyone I have met with such a zest for life, with such a belief that you can get things done, and who wanted to live every minute. He was absolutely inspiring, he did extraordinary things for charity, and meeting him was a huge privilege."
The front page of this morning's Daily Mirror really says it all. Just a couple of months ago I wrote here about this remarkable guy, Stephen Sutton. (You can read that post HERE). He battled cancer for four years, but he did much more than fight a disease. He raised awareness. He lived life. He brought in monies for treatment and research. He made a difference.
Requiescat in pace.
