Episode 01: “The Captain”
Being a role model to a teenage boy is never easy, but it’s even harder when you’re facing an aggressive form of cancer. In this first episode of Fathers And Sons, we meet 45-year-old Mr Dominic Manley and his 15-year-old son, Mr Finn Manley, as they attempt to navigate through uncharted waters.
The launch of the episode times with Father And Son Day, a charity initiative in alignment with the Royal Mardsen and dedicated to inspiring men and raising funds and awareness towards tackling male cancer.
“Don’t be a dickhead, be nice to other people and don't screw up.” Mr Jack Dyson, co-founder of Father And Son Day, shares the advice his father gave him.
“I first discovered I had cancer by accident.” Mr Daniel Marks, co-founder of Father And Son Day, talks about the day that changed his life, and the experiences that led him to set up the charity.
