By Gary Whelan

Seb Murphy is a member of Guiseley Greens U’12s who has bravely been battling his second diagnosis of Leukaemia for the past year.

He has been nominated for the Young Achiever Award in the Yorkshire Choice Awards which is a public vote so can I ask that you vote via the link below so we can try and help Seb win this award?

Below is a note from his mum and dad!

As many of you know, our eldest son, Sebastian (12), has since Christmas 2017 been battling cancer for the second time. Up until that point, he played regularly for the Guiseley Greens and thoroughly enjoyed it.

In the last 14 months he’s spent over 160 nights in hospital, much of that in isolation not even able to see his brother and sister. He has undergone high dose chemotherapy, immunotherapy, full body radiotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. He has bravely suffered the horrendous side effects of the brutal treatment (chronic sickness, hair loss, ulcers, anaemia, mobility problems, infections) and if he is lucky enough to be cured he will have to live with the longterm after effects of the treatment for the rest of his life. He is still receiving treatment and is not yet well enough to return to school. He has missed out on so many things that other healthy children simply take for granted. Throughout his ordeal, Seb has dealt with everything with courage and quiet determination. We are so proud of him and he is an inspiration to many.

He has been nominated in the Young Achiever Category of this year’s Yorkshire Choice Awards. We would be incredibly grateful if you could show your support for Seb and vote for him by clicking on the link below.
