Flannigan’s parents worked in hospitals their whole lives, and raised money for charities. Particularly cancer charities, whenever possible. He grew up with a sister, Liz –however according to a fundraising in her memory, it indicates that she died earlier this year.
James set up the fundraising page because it was his sister’s wish to ‘start a fundraiser for prostate cancer.’ –This believed to be because their father has advanced prostate cancer.
