My Dad, Melvin Sullivan, passed away on 9th October 2015, after a long fight against a form of Lymphoma called Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinaemia. Below is his fight, and how he helped others during it.

Melvin was a wonderful generous man, who helped many people in their lives get onto the right path, most involving football.  In 2006, shortly after he first got diagnosed with the illness, he created a team in the London borough of Hackney, called Lea Valley Football Club.  His aim was to create a community to prevent kids from not get into the gang culture.
