My 10 year old son has become an internet sensation. He has 5600+ followers on Facebook, is on first name terms with AFC Bournemouth, has a new bestie in his all time football hero and has raised over £2600 for Cancer Research.
At the beginning of 2016, Felix was merrily kicking a ball around without a care in the world, oblivious to what was about to hit him. The youngest, was idolising every single kick that his big brother Felix was making. At the same time our 11 year old daughter was lolling in her room, desperately trying to get 70+ likes and taking endless selfies. My husband and I were looking forward to a year where things were getting easier again. The kids were getting older, we were getting more sleep, we could start to be a bit more spontaneous again. It felt like we were embarking on a new phase in our life.
On 28th January 2016, Felix was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at Poole Hospital following a routine blood test. This is now our Brave New World; this is now our new normal.
