Kyle has been having treatment ever since. His tiny body has bravely coped with 20 rounds of chemotherapy, major surgery, a stem cell transplant and five weeks of radiotherapy. This was all topped off with immunotherapy treatment, which was meant to complete his treatment. Sadly, our hopes that Kyle could soon start enjoying a life free of cancer were cruelly dashed in january 2017.
A routine CT scan showed that the tumor was growing again, despite everything that had been thrown at it. As a result, the doctors have told us the tumour is too dangerous to remove and there’s nothing more they can do. But we can. And we will. We owe it Kyle to fight on, just as he is bravely doing. But we have to act fast. We will now seek advice from a top neuroblastoma surgeon in New York. His name is Dr Michael. P. La Quaglia (feel free to Google him) and he has a fantastic record of successfully treating cancer patients with cases similar to Kyle; cases that other doctors have given up hope on.
Unfortunately, we need extra £50k in order for us to travel to the US and pay to have surgery that will save his life. And time is not on our side. If you can spare any amount, no matter how small, it will dramatically improve Kyle’s chances of living to see his third, and many more birthdays.
