We received the worst news ever
Oscar was born in June 2014. He was a much longed for baby, our very own miracle boy. Oscar was a normal healthy happy little toddler. So in June 2017, we were shocked beyond belief to receive the worst news any parent could ever be given. Our darling boy had cancer. Oscar was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma of the right temporal fossa. Our world was completely shattered. Within days of diagnosis, Oscar had his central line fitted and was admitted to hospital to receive round one of thirteen sessions of chemotherapy. In November 2017 it was decided that surgery to remove the mass was an option. So on 28th November, Oscar’s mass was successfully removed, but due to inadequate healthy tissue margins, Oscar would still need proton therapy treatment to hopefully reduce the risk of relapse.
