BE BRAVE, BE BOLD, BE GOLD!
‘This is Eli, he is three years old. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) on the 18th of September 2019. It was the worst day of my life. I initially took him to hospital and he was diagnosed with acute tonsillitis, which he just never got better from. The fourth visit, I took him to the hospital and a few hours later we were at Leeds Children’s Hospital starting Chemotherapy. Eli has had five phases of treatment and is now on home maintenance treatment which lasts for three years. We are due to finish treatment the day before his 6th birthday. Eli having ALL has completely turned my world upside down, we have to be wary of everything. He just can’t do the usual things a toddler should be able to do, like go to nursery, swimming or even catch a cold. He is currently in remission, but anything can happen, we are still fighting this battle.
Candlelighters have been amazing, they are literally our umbrella, and without them, it would always be raining on us. They bring smiles when we want to cry and hold us up when we want to fall. They make
the journey that little bit easier and make memories of a lifetime.’
-Naomi, On-treatment Mum.
