Hello, my son Hugo was diagnosed with ALL in July 2015, aged 2. Thankfully he finished treatment in September last year and we are slowly starting to come out the other side. It’s such an incredibly difficult time for the whole family and sadly one that only people in the same situation can understand. These children are amazing though and so much tougher than they look. I would be so pleased to help anyone who has any questions or wants to share their experience. It can be very lonely and even when treatment is finished, it’s never really over. It would be lovely to support each other. Lisa x

Thanks @Alfie It still feels like quite a scary time, but we are all trying to focus on the positives and are very aware how lucky we are.

I imagine there are residual effects left over from such a traumatic experience.
