Ian Hughes, Trustee, Sarcoma UK

Ian is the owner at SILO Consulting Ltd, based in York. Ian has first-hand experience of sarcoma, having undergone surgery in 2010 to remove a tumour. Ian says: “Dealing with pre- and post-medical intervention and balancing this with a young family of three boys and a busy work life gives me a unique patient perspective.” Ian’s motivation to become a trustee was driven by the first-hand knowledge that early diagnosis has a genuine impact on survival rates and his desire to help Sarcoma UK increase awareness and knowledge.

Ian has been known to don his lycra shorts and take part in cycling challenges to raise money for Sarcoma UK.
