British Davis Cup player Ross Hutchins, who is just 28 years old, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma last December and he is continuing to receive Chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton.
Hodgkin's lymphoma is a cancer of lymph tissue found in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow, and other sites.
Ross started to feel intense back pain in April 2012 which became more excruciating towards the end of the year when he was diagnosed with cancer.
Now he has all his energy on his recovery and in raising money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, saying "it is an unbelievable place that helps thousands of people in situations similar to mine."
The Royal Marsden is a world-leading cancer centre dedicated to excellence in the study, treatment and care of people with cancer since 1851 and it is located in Chelsea, London and Sutton, Surrey.
They help and take care of 50,000 cancer patients from across the UK and abroad each year.
Over the last decade The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity has raised £100 million and their goal is to raise another £100 million over the next decade to ensure this work can continue in curing more people and improving quality of life for all those affected by cancer.
There are many ways we can help them, we can donate made online by visiting www.justgiving.com/RallyAgainstCancer2013 or via SMS by texting “RALL60 £10” to 70070 to make, for example, a £10 donation.
Ross Hutchins (@RoscoHutchins) and the tennis tour are also getting involved in this campaign.
First will be the Rally Against Cancer at The Aegon Championships on finals day where Ivan Lendl and Tomas Berdych will team up to face Andy Murray and Tim Henman in a doubles exhibition to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Also a selection of high-profile celebrities will then join Murray and Henman on court for some first-rate tennis action!
The tournament has also added an additional £10 for each finals day ticket which will go to Charity.
Thankfully it doesn’t stop here, The Lawn Tennis Association will contribute £10 for every ace hit during the tournament and visitors will have the opportunity to buy daily raffle tickets from Royal Marsden Cancer Charity volunteers at two tournament promotional booths, located at the front entrance of the Queen’s Club by the programme and cushions sales point, and opposite the public food court.
Also tennis fans will have the chance to drop their donations into Royal Marsden Cancer Charity collection boxes located at many points around the grounds, and buy charity pin badges.
It is a great opportunity to help people who really need all the support they can get.
