Diagnosed with Testicular Cancer November 2008
Richard says ‘It’s a bit of a shock being diagnosed with cancer, but I am strong believer in the power of positive thinking, which I believe got me through his treatment.
Bowled over by the care and compassion received from the Bristol team, Richard and fellow patient Mike Morgan came up with the idea of the Testicular Ball.
Richard is a retired Headteacher and a keen sportsman. He is a supporter of Bath Rugby and Plymouth Argyle, and a coach at City of Bath Hockey Club, a background that’s made him especially keen to get IITB’s message into schools and sports clubs.
