Started with a rash
Rufus was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at three years old after I discovered a rash of tiny pinprick dots across his torso one morning. He seemed relatively well regardless of this except for having recent viral colds and fevers. Things that we overlooked as normal for a toddler picking things up from nursery in the winter. We had the rash checked out because it didn’t feel right, even after his GP told us it was nothing to worry about. He was diagnosed in A&E after a blood test.
