I’ve tried, but I struggle to come to terms with losing Adam

Adam Stansfield 308 E1368191890818

Adam’s wife Marie has given a very rare interview to the Express and Echo about coming to terms with the loss of Adam. The interview was given in what is bowel cancer awareness month and here is a quote from Marie given to the Express and Echo:

“Since Adam died I am often asked, ‘how are you doing?’. I put the brave face on and say yes I’m OK but underneath it all I am still trying to come to terms with losing Adam. Our boys and our family keep me going and working on Adam’s Foundation gives me something positive to look forward to. The love and support we have all received from our friends within football and outside has also helped us get to this point. Much of our work in Adam’s charity is about helping young girls and boys get involved and play football but awareness is equally as important. Adam was a young fit professional sportsman so clearly this disease is not just for the old or unfit, up to 90 per cent of bowel cancers can be successfully treated if caught early enough so if you are worried at all please visit your doctor. If we can help save one family from experiencing what we have been going through for the last three years then at least some positives can come out of our loss.”
