Story

Joshua
Joshua was diagnosed in March 2014 and rushed into hospital where he immediately received treatment. He lost his hair and appetite and lost weight. He had a tube inserted to feed him and has undergone intensive chemotherapy being in the higher risk category for re-occurrence. He is doing well and has just had the feeding tube removed. He has just started the most intensive phase of chemotherapy and will then move on to maintenance for three further years of treatment.
