Lucas’ leukaemia battle

Update posted by Amanda Fryer On Nov 12, 2015

I am sure many of you have heard via Facebook I've arranged a fundraising event in Mulbarton for this weekend. It's taking place 2-4.30pm at Mulbarton Infant School so please come along there will be cake and refreshments of course along with a secondhand toy sale, craft activities for children, games to play, a raffle with some great prizes and a signed NCFC shirt up for auction.

All proceeds raised will go to Andrew and Sam.

The end of last week brought some positive news that round 1 of chemotherapy did its job! Bone marrow biopsy confirmed that, at that stage, the leukaemia present in Lucas? blood cells was less than 1%. While this is a good result at this stage, he will need biopsies after every chemotherapy course to see if the leukaemia returns, so there is still a long way to go with the treatment and at least another 4 months in hospital. However, it has at least given us all the positive signs we needed that the chemotherapy is making a massive difference.

However there was little time to celebrate as later that day the 2nd round of chemo commenced. This is slightly shorter in duration at 8 days, but unfortunately this round seems to be hitting hard from the start with Lucas already suffering and being very up and down. The kindness and generosity of everyone around continues to make it easier for Andrew and Sam to cope during this period and enables them to remain with Lucas throughout and I continue to thank you all for your support.

I?ve been overwhelmed and so touched by everyone?s generosity and kindness, I can?t believe how much is already in the fund in such a short period of time.

I would like to thank you all so kindly.

As for Lucas? progress he completed his first round of chemotherapy just over 2 weeks ago and after an awful week or more dealing the side-effects such treatment can bring he is now enjoying some much needed respite before the next round of chemotherapy begins in the next week or so. Yesterday was such a joy to see Lucas smiley and happy it makes us all optimistic of the future. However the treatment still has a long way to go and it is too soon to know how effective it has been. Whilst he is recovering well from chemo, that gives no indication of how effective the treatment will be.
