Emilia Clarke
Thursday, April 25, 2019

 A regal message arrived today for one of our #TeamSarcoma champions taking part in the Virgin Money London Marathon on 28 April.

Emilia Clarke, currently lighting up our screens as Daenerys Targaryen on Sky Atlantic/HBO’s Game of Thrones, took time out to send good wishes to Adam Packer, who is fundraising for Sarcoma UK.

Adam is running in memory of his partner, Dean Eastmond, the journalist and activist who died in 2016 following treatment for Ewing’s sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. 

‘I think what you’re doing for Sarcoma UK is just brilliant’, says the actor in a personal message for Adam, ‘I think Dean would be incredibly proud.’

Also running in memory of Dean are friend Andrew ‘Grundy’ Lyons and family friend, Paula Fry.  

  • Sarcoma UK aims to ensure everyone affected by sarcoma receives the best treatment, care, information and support available and to create the treatments of the future. Find out how you can help.
