Will Wells describes the moment he was diagnosed with Salivary Ductal adenocarcinoma cancer as news, order which “hit me like a train”. Will, price in his twenties, had the the world at his feet, a new girlfriend and a great job working as an investment fund manager in London.
“It was the most shocking thing anybody had ever said to me. I was in the fight of my life. Head and neck cancer is very invasive. I had a full level neck dissection and had a total of 52 lymph nodes removed followed by months of radiotherapy.
For me, getting back to five a side football was a significant moment – potentially I had beaten one of the worst things I would ever have to face”.
Will is currently back at work and living life to the full.
