Everyone at Paget Rangers Football Club is sad to hear the news about Jamie, we wish Jamie and his family the best. If you would like to donate, see the details below:
From the JustGiving donation page:
“Please help us to raise £100,000 for Jamie Hunter.
Jamie has been diagnosed with an advanced form of liver cancer for which there is no cure.
His firstborn is due at the end of May.
In March 2020, at the age of just 38, our beloved friend Jamie Hunter was given a devastating prognosis. Baby Hunter is due at the end of May but in the hope that Jamie has the chance to see and cuddle his baby, then the decision has been made to deliver the baby early on May 10th.
As if life isn’t cruel enough, Beccy may have to face childbirth without Jamie, as his health is deteriorating every day.
For those of you who know Jamie, you will know how much he has always wanted a family of his own. He has met his true love in Beccy Flint and just when everything seemed to be falling into place, they have been dealt the most painful blow.
Jamie will never be able to celebrate his baby’s first birthday, teach them to ride a bike and learn to swim or be there for their first day at school.
All of these are the things that we take for granted.
It’s an awfully bleak situation, but Jamie will be the first to tell you that this isn’t over just yet.
Jamie is also a huge Manchester United fan with a massive heart, who has dedicated his life to football and teaching. As a P.E teacher at John Wilmott School in Sutton Coldfield, he has touched so many lives and has been an outstanding role model, developing young people through all walks of life.
There are so many amazing things to say about Jamie, that no words can do him justice.
Jamie joined Sutton United Football Club as a teenager and as a manager and coach; he has taken teams from 6/7 years of age all the way through to adult football. Jamie loved this so much he did it twice!
Alongside his amazing coaching efforts he also played for the clubs first team. A commanding centre back with a decent touch for a big lad… ha!
After a number of successful years, he decided to stop playing in 2018, turning his attention to coaching adult’s football.
The money that is raised will go towards supporting Jamie’s care, his family and Baby Hunter.
A donation will also be made to John Taylor Hospice who have been amazing in providing care for Jamie and Beccy to this date.
We will be organising a calendar of planned events over the next year which will include: football tournaments, charity football matches, running & cycling challenges and many other events bringing Jamie’s whole extended family together!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read Jamie’s story.
Best Wishes Phil Taylor and Chad Duggan x x x”
