In an interview with the Sunday Mirror Jane Sutton describes how the teenager from Staffordshire is her driving force.

My son was an athlete himself who participated in cross country and track events. Despite being diagnosed with cancer he continued to run and he was determined to complete a marathon. He never managed that – but now his determination is helping me.”

– Jane Sutton

The inspirational 19-year-old became known around the world as he raised millions of pounds for Teenage Cancer Trust before his death last year.

Next month marks the first ­anniversary of Stephen’s death.
