Billy's story is currently being updated and his supporters can expect to read more about plans for Billy's legacy within the next few weeks.
More about Billy.
Billy had everything to live for. Ever since he was little he was a lovely, kind soul.
He went on to help raise awareness around mental health issues for other young people going through cancer, including this interview with Channel 4 news
and through some published articles he has written
. He recently went on Radio Norfolk with me to talk about his ordeal and this campaign
He had a huge love of music and art which motivated him to focus on his future. Billy even graduated from the Access Creative College artist development programme, despite his relentless ordeal and having to do most of his work remotely, usually from his bed, due to his cancer treatment.
During long periods of treatment and being isolated from friends, Billy focused upon writing, producing and recording his own songs from his bedroom in Norwich
and has been catching the eye of several prominent artists in the field. He is an incredibly talented songwriter with a beautiful voice and the potential to be a successful musician.
To say that Billy has been through a traumatic time is an understatement. When most young people are making plans for their futures, becoming independent and having fun, Billy has spent most of the last three years undergoing harrowing hospital treatment or at home sick with the side effects.
