campaigning tirelessly for others while battling with cancer

Clive Stone MBE

Clive Stone MBE (1 Jan 2016)

Clive Stone (7 October 1947-2 June 2016) was awarded an MBE for services to cancer patients in 2011. He worked tirelessly in setting up the government’s Cancer Drugs Fund; and in recognition of this he was nominated to carry the Olympic Torch through Woodstock in 2012.

Locally, he set up a kidney patients’ group at the Churchill Hospital and served on a committee looking into hospital food. He gave emotional support and practical advice to many who phoned to ask for help; contributed weekly columns for the Oxford Mail on cancer related issues; and appeared in a series of TV programmes about cancer and other medical conditions.

Clive also helped to set up Eynsham Good Neighbour Network in September 2013, after many months’ work behind the scenes. He brought invaluable experience and advice to a very capable committee. He stepped down only as his cancer continued to progress.
