Lucas Sutheren (12) - will join Beefy on Monday 16 April in Sheffield
Lucas was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in January 2011, after he was sent to Sheffield Children’s Hospital for a biopsy. He began intensive chemotherapy immediately and is responding well to treatment.
Mum Jill says: “We try and keep things as normal as possible for him, he’s got a couple of very special friends and he is really looking forward to starting High School. He loves football and he got a signed football shirt and ball from Barnsley FC. He is thrilled to bits to be Beefy’s local hero for Sheffield and as a family we think it is a fantastic opportunity for him, it’s a real privilege.
