Oliver Neely

ThymicUK Trustee

IT and Web Design

Oliver Neely first became aware of Thymoma back in 2013 when his father Andrew Neely was diagnosed with the condition. As a rare and relatively unheard of cancer, Oliver wanted to find out as much information as possible to help his father overcome the disease. He soon discovered that much of the advice and support for patients with Thymoma was limited, and generalised from other cancers and conventional, general purpose treatments.

Andrew underwent several rounds of chemotherapy which helped to stabalise his cancer. He was determined to live his life to the full; continuing to work part-time, travelling Europe on a number of cruises and spending quality time with family and friends.

A founding member of ThymicUK, all were saddened at the loss of Andrew in 2020 to leukaemia.

Oliver attended many of the early meetings at ThymicUK and has since played a role in the digital communications and marketing taking experience from his work as a writer and web developer.

Oliver enjoys walks with his dog in the country and by the seaside. He is a keen baker and gets excited by new recipes, experimenting and sharing creations with others.

As a trustee of ThymicUK Oliver hopes to be able to find, create and share valuable resources to help anyone affected by Thymic cancers in the UK.
