Update on Cameron: five years clear and 10 years old
We marked Cameron’s five years clear of leukaemia with an activity weekend in Birmingham at the beginning of May. On the Saturday I took him to Snowdome for ice skating, swimming and tobogganing. He had a great time, enjoying every minute of his new favourite pastimes.
On Sunday 2 May, the actual five year clear date, I took him to Cadbury World. Cameron is in no way a chocaholic so he was very sensible with his freebies, even bringing some home.
Looking back, these last five years have gone pretty fast. Cameron is doing really well at school. He loves choir, literacy, history and science. He has also been playing the guitar for just over a year. He was always good at drawing and now he’s an artist in another way too. I’m told he’s a natural at guitar; he picks it up really quickly.
He has no problems with his health. He fights off colds really well. He is a very loving, fun lad to be around and grasps life and opportunities with eagerness and both hands. Thankfully he doesn’t remember much of his three year treatment. It’s as if you are talking about someone else going through it. I can’t tell you how proud of him I am. He’s my true hero.
