Alfie Ward was born on the 25th May 2002, he weighed 7lb 12.5oz. On the 27th May 2008 and the 15th October 2010 Alfie became a big brother to Bailey and Freddie, two young boys who love Alfie as much as he loves them.Alfie started life a happy and healthy little boy, that was, until he was diagnosed with Ganglineuroblastoma in September 2005 at the age of 3 years. Alfie was just starting nursery when this diagnosis came through. Doctors agreed to keep an eye on it through routine scans.Unfortunately, at the end of 2007, during a routine MRI scan, doctors found another lump in Alfie’s abdomen and in January 2008 he was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. With Alfie due to become a big brother in May 2008 his parents feared the worst...that he would never meet his younger brother. Alfie then began the road to recovery and started the remission step of neuroblastoma. He went back to school, enjoyed being back amongst his many friends and continued to develop into a handsome little boy.During another routine MRI scan in Dec 2011 the doctors found a query with the result. This t resulted in Alfie having more scans and tests. Although not diagnosed as a relapse of neuroblastoma, doctors decided Alfie needed to start intense chemotherapy to shrink the thickening area they found near Alfie’s spine and kidneys.Unfortunately chemotherapy didn't shrink it enough but confirmed that it was Relapse of neuroblastoma.All I want is for my 15 year old boy to enjoy the rest of his life and try and get rid of this disease once and for all.Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my beautiful boy, anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.
