#StephensStory: Dying Cancer Teen Stephen Sutton Raises £2 Million On Just Giving Page


A fund-raising campaign started by a dying teenage cancer sufferer has passed the incredible total of £2 million.

Stephen Sutton, 19, started the Just Giving page and chronicled his bucket list of last wishes after being diagnosed with colorectal three years ago.

With support from celebrities such as Piers Morgan, Jason Manford and Duncan Bannatyne, donations to the page rocketed, doubling from £1 million in little over two days.

Stephen had originally only been aiming to raise £10,000. The current total stands at £2,126,540.00 from over 88,000 donations which will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

On Tuesday Stephen posted a "final thumbs up"....

Later on Thursday he posted again detailing the struggle he had gone through this week...

Raising the money was number one on his bucket list of 46 wishes including hugging an elephant:

Crowd-surfing in a rubber dinghy:

Along the way he has met bands, celebrities and all manner of famous folk:

He even got to read the news... sort of.

Truly inspirational stuff.
