The symptoms on his body
Blue was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) Mk 4 in March 2011. His symptoms were bruising on his body and nose bleeds, a sign that his platelets were low. He was blue-lighted to William Harvey Hospital in Ashford where he was found to have leukaemia. We were then transferred by paediatric ambulance to Addenbrooks in Cambridge almost 150 miles away from friends and family where it was to be diagnosed as Acute Myeloid Leukaemia MK 4, an aggressive type of blood cancer with a less than average survival rate. After 10 days we were transferred to The Royal Marsden in Sutton, where intensive chemotherapy began.
