Seraph's story, by his parents....
In 2017, he was a just normal 3 year old; finding his feet at nursery, making new friends, climbing on everything! One night, just before Christmas, he fell out of his cot and broke his arm. Just our luck, we thought. Not knowing what was to come. Over Christmas, he still seemed in a lot of pain, so we returned to A+E. An exploratory ultrasound revealed a tumour in his abdomen. Further investigation showed the cancer was in his skeleton and bone marrow. The broken arm had very much been 'a lucky break.' Without it, our first trip may well have been to PICU
Seraph has been through so much; surgery, chemotherapy so strong it has damaged his hearing, a stem cell transplant (which had him in isolation for a month, and in hospital for 2). He was the first patient at Addenbrookes to undergo 5 weeks of radiotherapy for this disease, and he did each day without general anaesthetic (unusual for a child so young). Finally, we hope he'll finish Immunotherapy in June 2019.
Although this is one of the most intensive protocols for any paediatric cancer (and all the NHS can currently offer) still about half of the children who make it through, relapse. Therefore we are fundraising for future treatment. Current possibilities cost in the hundreds of thousands of pounds, and are (just now) only offered abroad.
'Logan is our moon. Seraph is our sun. I honestly don't know what we'd do without him. Every child deserves a full and happy life, and we need both our children to shine.'
Please share and donate to allow Seraph access to potentially life-saving treatment
