The chief executive of the Teenage Cancer Trust has said the money raised by Stephen Sutton's fundraising campaign was hugely welcome but it was difficult to over-state the importance of his work in raising awareness about the disease in young people.
Siobhan Dunn said: "I think what's really important is Stephen will never be forgotten because he, like every young person who is diagnosed with cancer, lives on in the work that we do, and they're a very important part of our work."
She added: "I think it's really important there's a public celebration of Stephen's life, and I think that's exactly what he would have wanted.
"He was looking for us to put the fun into his funeral so hopefully we're going to do that."
More than 10,000 people joined Stephen Sutton's family and friends in paying an emotional farewell to the inspirational teen cancer victim.
We were inundated with responses after asking our Facebook readers to post 'thumbs up' pictures in tribute to Stephen Sutton.
Mourners turned out to celebrate the life of teenage cancer victim Stephen Sutton as the fund he launched topped £4 million.
