Sadly, we have just had an update from Morgan. He has received some news today that was certainly not what the family were hoping for.
Morgan has acute lymphoblastic lymphoma cancer in his lymph nodes. He has a long fight ahead and has been told that he may be undergoing Chemotherapy for up to a year. He has been transferred to Nottingham and at the moment its not clear how long they will be there. Please keep sharing and donating. This family need and deserve as much as we can give them to help them through this difficult fight.
Update from Morgan's Mum, Gemma:
Yesterday afternoon we were given the opportunity to look at Morgan's XRays and scans.
To see him with only 1 lung was shocking and the doctor said all the medics were astounded that he had carried on for so long on one lung undetected that they couldn't believe it.
(I cant help but feel very cross with a doctor at Spilsby surgery who listened to his chest on the Monday and said it was perfectly normal but the consultants and Drs at the pilgrim have said this has been amassing for a long time)
They talked us through the fluid around his heart and that his heart is functioning perfectly at the moment and it isn't immediate cause for concern.
It is hoped his lung is reinflating but we don't know current fluid levels in his chest. We only know they took 2 litres out.
We were also given the opportunity to discuss the mass that they have found inside. At this moment we cannot say what it is. Because the medics aren't sure either although we have been told options of what it could be and how long the road will be. We have 3 hospitals working on Morgan's case and there is another big meeting on Wednesday.
I cannot say much more. It's such a hard time. We have nearly been there a fortnight. Life is hard for all of us and we don't know what the future holds. I won't be replying to most messages. My updates will be on here.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the page Lisa Spring has set up. We are definitely going to need it.
As of next week child benefit and child tax end for Morgan. He isn't going to university and won't be able to sign on so will officially have no income or money until we can get an official diagnosis. With what little I get I am trying my best. I can only assure people the money will be spent on emergency accommodation and the high cost of living day to day at a hospital as things arise. We have so far bought him more pyjamas to be able to keep up with need.
Thank you again for everyone's support xx
Those of you that know Morgan already know what a kind, hardworking and generously selfless young lad he is. Morgan has been instructing at Storm UK martial arts and runs the Little Tornado's sessions with a group of volunteers including his mum and sister.
After training last Wednesday (9/8/17). Morgan was rushed into hospital with difficulty breathing and chest pains. It was found that he had a lot of fluid on his lungs and around his heart and he has been in critical care ever since with his mum, Gemma, by his side.
Gemma has her own health issues and Morgan and his sister are her main carers. Gemma is constantly by Morgans side and is foregoing her own medication to help Morgan, both are nervously waiting on news of a transfer to Nottingham for Morgan to get further help and care but are worried about the impact that this will have in terms of Gemma's ability to be with him, accommodation and living costs whilst he is in hospital. It is our aim to be able to raise funds to allow Gemma to remain by Morgan's side and be able to meet the costs of accommodation, food at the hospital and supplies for Morgan etc.
As a family, I don't think you would find anyone more caring and charitable who create so many opportunities for young people and right now they very much need and deserve our support. Please give as generously as you can. As the advert says, every little helps!
