Stephen Sutton is all Thumbs Up!

Stephen Sutton, the inspirational teenager who raised over £4 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust, deserves your tweet: #ThumbsUpForStephen

Sutton was born on 16 December 1994,and attended primary and secondary school in his home town of BurntwoodStaffordshire. During his youth, Sutton was a very active child, participating in sports and athletics, particularly long-distance running and football.

Sutton received straight A grades from Chase Terrace Technology College in August 2012, and had interviews at Cambridge University to study medicine, as well as universities in Leicester and Leeds. He later withdrew his applications before getting a verdict, after his cancer was determined to be incurable.

Celebrities including comedian Sarah Millican, Shobna Gulati and Neil Morrissey have been photographed giving the ‘thumbs up’ gesture in memory of Staffordshire teenager Stephen Sutton.

Thousands of people have been posting images of themselves using the hashtag #ThumbsUpForStephen after his family asked people to celebrate his life on the day of his funeral.

A statement posted on Stephen’s Facebook page by his mother Jane said the continued support, including the hundreds of yellow ribbons now decorating the town, had been a “great comfort”.

The continued love and support for Stephen is wonderful and a great comfort. I want people to have the chance to come and pay their last respects to Stephen.

It is important that the vigil at Lichfield Cathedral has an opening and a public farewell, so I invite people especially to come and be part of these two moments and remember Stephen.

Stephen wanted to put the fun in funeral, so don’t feel you need to wear black. It’s a celebration of his life and achievements.

If you can’t make it, remember to take a moment at 11am on Friday morning to give a Thumbs up for Stephen.

This could be via the thunderclap #ThumbsupforStephen, or you could give the thumbs up to a stranger, have a cup of tea and a slice of cake, think a positive thought, clap, cheer, or even perform a random act a kindness.

Do something that makes you and others happy in Stephen’s memory.

We honour Stephen Sutton and his tremendous attitude after finding out he had a life-taking disease. If more people were like Stephen we’d get further on cancer research faster.
