Ben Cull Wiki – Ben Cull Biography
Former England youth star Ben Cull has died aged 23 after a battle with cancer. His long-time partner Daisy Morrison shared the tragic news on her Instagram page, just weeks after the Southampton academy player proposed to her from hospital. Morrison wrote on Friday: “The hardest goodbye. Yesterday I lost my entire life, my fiancé, my soulmate, my person, my entire world. I always hoped and prayed that this day would never come. “The real anguish is real, my heart physically hurts and I have never felt pain like this.” At age 17, Mr. Cull was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone and soft tissue disease that develops in the supporting tissues of the body. He had played for Southampton’s under-23 team and earned two caps for the England youth team before his diagnosis. In her post, Ms Morrison wrote: “You fought until the end my dear, I know you did absolutely everything you could to stay and despite suffering so much you kept going, for that I will be forever grateful, you never gave up.” God simply had his own plans. ‘One thing I can say for sure is that we made the most of every second. They both said that we would rather have met our soulmate and had less time than have lived a lifetime without each other.

In an August 18 post, Cull shared a photo of himself with Morrison, with the caption “Marry me?”The post read: ‘Daisy, I’ve had this planned since last year…this isn’t exactly what I had in mind for you when I wanted to tell you how I felt about you and how I could ask you!’ ‘From the moment I met you I knew you were different in every way, you changed me for the better. I knew you as a boy and now I am here as a man. ‘I don’t know a single person who would do what you have done and endure what you have endured and that is why I know I would never want to spend my life without you. ‘I promise you that I will fight with everything to see you walk down that [hallway] and I promise to remind you of my love for you every day as long as I live.’ Cull became a professional footballer through Southampton’s academy and joined their under 18 team in 2015. He was diagnosed with cancer three years later in 2018. It is unclear what causes Ewing sarcoma. Cancer is most common in children and adolescents, but can develop at any age. The disease can spread from where it started, making it difficult to treat. Medical professionals recommend seeing a doctor if your child experiences persistent symptoms including pain, swelling, or tenderness near the affected area; bone-ache; unexplained tiredness; fever without cause; or lose weight without trying.
