On the 10/12/14 we received the most devastating news ever. Our 9 year old son Jack was diagnosed with testicular cancer germ cell tumour call Seminomas, which is very rare for someone his age.

on the 02/01/15 he had surgery to have his right testicle and tube removed. They also took a biopsy from the left testicle, due to having a sighting in another part of his body he had to have a central line fitted in his chest so that he could start a course of chemotherapy immediately.

Our son has been through so much in such a short time it's unreal, he is so brave and strong, blood test after blood test, ultra sounds and cat scan, bone x-ray/scans and surgery.

Now his chemotherapy has started, at first he was doing really well and on the third day he became really poorly. His anti sickness stopped working and he had to spend extra nights in Southampton general hospital Piam brown ward, where he was well looked after by all nurses/sisters/doctors on the ward. We really cant thank them enough. He has another three cycles to go through and we are hoping that the hospital have found the right dosage of anti sickness to keep him from getting poorly again.We were told about the side affects Jack would go through with the treatment and prepared him foe what was to come. Yesterday we had the first sign that he was losing his hair, so he decided he wanted his head shaved before it had a chance to fall out on its own.

We are holding a fund raising event on the 20/02/2015 where family and friends are shaving their head or having their hair dyed orchid (lilac)

We are trying to raise as many funds as possible to provide toys equipment,treatments,day trips for the children of the ward, Who is suffering the same as our son Jack.

100% money raised will be going to Piam Brown ward the child cancer patient ward in Southampton General.
