Memorial Fund for David Chapman

David George Chapman was sadly diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer in the bladder called Angiosarcoma, a type of cancer which is so rare the stats are not known but it is roughly 1 in a million people that end up being diagnosed.

David was brave and courageous in his fight against cancer, he never complained about the pain and took every single hospital appointment and every treatment and surgery in his stride and we are so proud of him for the way he handled the awful cards he was dealt.

David was lucky enough to be treated at The Royal Marsden Hospital in South Kensington London by the expert Sarcoma team who did everything they could to save David’s life and we will always be eternally grateful for the care that he received, they treated David with such dignity from the day he walked in and up to his final moments.

David’s cancer is so so rare it’s often not seen by many doctors and the Sarcoma team at The Royal Marsden unfortunately do not have the funding they need to be able to do the research to find the cure. I know that David would want us to do all we can to raise money into research for this type of cancer so that no family have to go through losing a loved one to this awful and cruel disease.

We are asking for immediate family flowers only but if you would like to make a donation, we are raising money for The Royal Marsden Charity Sarcoma Team, unfortunately they do not have their own direct charity link so we are going to be raising money on their behalf to donate directly to them after David’s funeral. Please give what you can as this money will be so useful for more research to be done. We will be raising money on this page and then we are going to write out a cheque and deliver it to The Royal Marsden hospital to give to the team directly as one last thank you for everything they did for David and our family. 

We will love and remember David every single day of our lives and the way he touched every single person that he met and we will never ever stop keeping his memory alive.
