ADAM has shown us all what living life to the full looks like.

These are the words of praise by Pompey legend Linvoy Primus about cancer survivor Adam Brombley.

The 15-year-old, of Birch Tree Drive, Emsworth, is an inspiration to his family and friends after showing strength and bravery in his fight against non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Adam spent 10 months undergoing gruelling chemotherapy and missed virtually a whole academic year at Chichester High School for Boys.

His cancer is now in remission and he is using his time to give back.

He took part in the children’s cancer survivors choir for Stand Up To Cancer last October, singing live on Channel 4 with Nicole Scherzinger.

And he went to 10 Downing Street to help launch a new cancer initiative.

His mum Julie Brombley, who nominated him for the Inspiration of the Year Award, said: ‘Adam has been unbelievably brave and positive throughout his cancer journey and his attitude has always been “do whatever you need to do to make me better”.

‘Adam is not one to sit still, and he has been like a whirlwind since he has been in remission, making up for lost time.

‘He has qualified as a football referee and he looks forward to match days at Fratton Park to see his beloved Portsmouth Football Club.’

Time is running out to nominate. The deadline for nominations is April 24.

We are desperate for nominations for the Star of the Environment and Stage Star. A Readers’ Choice will be launched next month.
