Unfortunately I have some extremely sad news.

Stokesy's cancer has returned and is in his lower back this time.

It is the same rare and aggressive form of cancer that he had back in 2015.

Sadly the doctors have told him there is nothing they can do this time apart from offer him palliative care.

I know some people on here have met Richard in the past and some have even had lessons from him.

I have been debating whether or not to post this over the last few days, but I am sure
anyone who has met or knows Richard would want to know.

Right now Richard and his family are coming to terms with this devastating news.

Thanks.

It is with great sadness that I write this post.

Richard has unfortunately lost his battle cancer.

At least he is no longer in pain.

Love ya, Stokesy.
