Lucas was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was born. Today, he is a happy, healthy little boy.
His great Aunt Larya tells his story.
“When Lucas was born in June 2010, the doctors knew immediately that something was wrong. He had a huge distended stomach and was rushed straight to intensive care at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham.
Four days later, we were told that Lucas had neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is the second most common solid tumour in childhood, affecting just under 100 children a year in Britain. And our little Lucas was one of them.
