Rymel bellot is a 21yr old positive ,well mannered, free spirited and hard working young man. He is the second youngest of five children and out of all of his siblings he is labelled as the "quite one with a bad case of OCD!!"
Unfortunately Rymel and his youngest brother was born with Bet sickle thalassaemia (which is the same as full sickle cell anaemia)
Over the years Rymel has had a lot hospital admissions due to bad sickle-cell crisis but this has never held him back in life , he still managed to work full time as a barista , still taught dance at a local club once a week & still managed to live his life to the fullest.
June this year was a month we will never forget. A lump appeared on the left side of Rymel's neck , because of his sickle cell condition he was taken straight to hospital where he was admitted pending further investigations. After all relevant tests scans, biopsys Rymel was diagnosed with cancer of the thyroid gland and after having a full blood exchange because of the risk of him having a sickle cell crisis during sugery he had both his glands removed along with some infected lymph nodes. After surgery we were told that his cancer was quite aggressive and it must of been there for some time as this is normally a slow growing cancer, and unfortunately one of his voice boxes was damaged so only one side works which has limited his speech.
The beginning of October was treatment time for his cancer at mount vernon hospital which has Rymel has seemed to of dealt with very well. He has recently returned home to his loving family after two weeks away with his godmother as he was radio active and was at risk of putting vulnerable people in his home at risk.
It is still too early to know if Rymel's treatment has fully worked he has to wait for the relevant tests but he has been told that there is a possibility he may need another dose of treatment but we all remain positive.
