Fundraiser by former East Grinstead player

Daisy Strange 1
Former East Grinstead player Daisy Strange has launched a fundraiser for The Royal Marsden Hospital, who have been helping her overcome tongue cancer.

Well known for her bubbly personality and superb talent, Daisy featured on numerous occasions for the women's 1st XI and helped the club win the U18 Girls' National Indoor title.

However in October 2019 she was diagnosed with Stage 4 tongue cancer despite being just 24-years-old.

Although she still has a long fight ahead, Daisy has endured extensive, life changing surgery. The procedure saw her lymph nodes removed, her jaw broken and her tongue removed and replaced with skin from her thigh. 

Daisy is currently undergoing intensive treatment at The Royal Marsden in Chelsea, including speech and language therapy where Daisy will learn to create sounds without the use of a tongue as well as learning to eat again.

In true Daisy spirit she would like to raise as much money and awareness for The Royal Marsden who are providing her with much love and care during a tough time. Her Hockey Family at East Grinstead are following suit and helping daisy raise money and sharing her story.
