Story

Caleb, now 4 years old was born tiny at just 27 weeks along with his sisters Poppy and Alyssia. Caleb took unwell around the end of February last year, a CT scan showed a large mass in his brain which was removed. The results have now came back showing it is an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) which is a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Little Caleb received intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy for 6 months.

Caleb travelled to Florida in May 2019 and underwent proton beam therapy which the doctors thought had been 99% successful. Caleb then went onto stay at The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow for another bought of intense chemotherapy.

After thinking everything was ok, the family sadly received devastating news on Monday 1st June. Caleb's family were called by the hospital to go in at 1pm to discuss Caleb's recent MRI. The family were given the devastating news that their beautiful sons cancer has returned this time more aggressive and with 4 more spots. At this time the surgeons and oncology team were in agreement that there is nothing more that they could do.

LATEST UPDATE 7th June 2020- There has been a development in Caleb’s fight against brain cancer. Since getting the devastating news last week that Caleb only had 4 months to live, through tears and sleepless nights we decided to fight for a second opinion. We found a trial drug in Manchester that we hope will give us more time with Caleb.

With the backing of an oncologist in Manchester, and Caleb's surgeon in Glasgow we have decided to opt for Caleb to go in for surgery on Tuesday 16th June. The plan will be to remove most of the tumour and then proceed with the drug.

Taking this option may give us time or it could shrink the tumour, we dont know for sure what the outcome will be. In saying that, we are going to give it our best shot. Caleb has been deteriorating quite rapidity this week and this would give him the best possible chance. The operation lasts approximately 8 hours, it may not work, Caleb may not make it out of theatre. As difficult as it is to make the decision to operate, these risks are the same risks we faced last year when Caleb was diagnosed with ATRT for the first time. If we didnt take the chance we would never forgive ourselves.

LATEST UPDATE 19th June 2020- Less than a week after his surgery Caleb is now HOME!!!

Caleb has done so well with his recovery that he’s now home with his family.

Everyone is so happy to see him, especially his sisters 💕💕 Caleb LOVES home cooking and is looking forward to some good food 😊😊Caleb's family will be keeping an eye on him as he continues to recover from his operation but today is another win that we are so thankful for .

Please keep our precious Caleb in your thoughts and prayers. As the family are trying to come to terms with the the journey ahead, I have set up a crowdfunding page to help raise funds to create as many precious memories for Caleb and his family.

Caleb's family would like to thank everyone who has supported them throughout this difficult time and although they may not be able to reply to all messages, they will read them all x
