Latest update: February 2018
Jacob is now 16 months off treatment and has check-ups every three months now. He is currently very healthy and the chance of relapse decreases all the time, but the worry is always there. Jacob is still doing really well at school and taking part in lots of football and hockey matches, and recently did a school cross country race. His physical strength has taken a long time to return but he does seem like any other ‘normal’ child now. He still talks about his treatment but really just wants to be like all his friends. We feel very lucky that he has got through his treatment without any major long term effects so far.
Jacob (left) seen here with his brother, went to his first Chelsea football match towards the end of January, so he was very excited.
