Our club charity is the Alex Hulme Foundation.
On every playing shirt in the club, from Under 6 to 1st XV we where the logo of the Alex Hulme Foundation with pride.
Non – Hodgkin Lymphoma
Alex was born in Trafford on July 29th 1999 and led a full and fruitful life with his fun, easy going and mature approach to life.
In March 2011 Alex was diagnosed with B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. His treatment worked well in the early stages, yet Alex’s cancer returned in late June and although he responded well again, he lost his six month battle and left us on Monday September 5th 2011.
There has been no funding made available into the causes and treatment of Non Hodgkin Lymphoma in Children. Over 80% of children survive the disease but unfortunately Alex wasn’t one of them so there is still a long way to go before we reach the target of a 100% survival rate.
We felt it only fitting that we should honour Alex by setting up a legacy that will enable us to help others suffering with the illness that took him from us.
The Alex Hulme Foundation was formed on 12th October 2011 by Alex’s Mum and Dad, Nicola and Dave Hulme along with Alex’s Auntie, Brenda Jackson.
Through donations donors will be helping towards improving the research into and the treatment of this dreadful disease and thus providing diagnosed children with a better prognosis for the future.
Our intention is for the Foundation to belong to everyone who supports it as they will become part of Alex’s extended family. We guarantee that 100% of the money raised by your Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma fundraising efforts will go towards developing research into Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Children.
