Earlier this week I received some really upsetting news. Once of my work colleagues and a friend had passed away aged just 30 years old.
Drew was unfortunately diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Sarcoma in October 2011. I used to sit next to Drew in the office and we always used to have a laugh and a good bit of friendly banter. I remember Drew telling me that he was getting some pains in his back and that he was going to go to the doctors. I then had a week’s holiday from work and when I returned Drew wasn’t sat in his chair, it was then that I was told that Drew had been diagnosed with cancer.
