My day as a Fulham FC mascot
It was amazing and I loved meeting some of my football heroes. Pogba spoke to me and I told him to have a fair game and he laughed. I loved walking out with Fulham as they are a good team. You guys at Children with Cancer UK are doing a great job raising money to help children like me and thank you for making me feel special. The players were really nice as they all spoke to him and said hello and “ even though they were so busy.
Blue, 9th February 2019
Blue is in remission, he has an issue with his kidneys where they are very small, but they are growing now so the doctors aren’t too worried. He has just had his heart echo which is now perfectly normal, having had a problem from the treatment (chemo) in the past. Unfortunately he has had some trauma from memories and flashbacks where he had been so ill but he is seeing a physiologist who is helping him overcome these. It’s very common in these children, where so far down the line something triggers them to retract back to when they were so poorly. Blue was very scared and emotional as he kept thinking it was going to come back and he would die like so many of his friend. He has also taken up boxing and mixed martial arts to combat his fears and strengthen his muscle wastage affected by his recovery. It’s a long old road.
