Scan Results 🎗

We have the most wonderful news to share with you all!

Riley’s recent scan results were all

C L E A R!!! 💛💛

This year we are trying so hard to put cancer behind us but when it comes to his 6monthly scans it is hard to not think back to when he was diagnosed and he was having all these different tests and scans done.

It’s always the best sound to hear when his consultant tells me his scans are all clear!! The anxiety stops for another 6 months.

Riley is 5 years old now, he was only 21months when he was diagnosed. He is asking more questions about when he was having treatment for his cancer. So far he’s asked… “has my cancer gone yet” “why didn’t I have any hair” I just try and explain things to him the best that I can with him only been 5 it’s still hard for him to be able to understand things probably. He knows why he didn’t have any hair. His knows why he had a wiggly line and a tube in his nose. He understands more now when he has to go for his MRI scans. We have pictures all over the house of Riley with no hair so it’s understandable he’s going to ask questions. He knows he is a special little boy who has the best superpowers! We got a book from his consultant about Lucy having a tumour so hopefully the more we can read of that he will be able to understand a little bit more…

Riley has now been in remission for 2years! 730days! He’s had 4 clear scans in a row now! Which is bloody amazing!!!

So so so proud of my amazing strong little boy. I will always be every so grateful to the oncology team at the hospital for helping save my little boys life! We had some absolutely horrible times when Riley had his treatment but now it’s all about having fun, counting our blessings and making the most wonderful memories!

I love you Riley.

My 2017 In 100 Words.

2017, i learnt alot & i think i grew alot..

2017 wasn’t really about neuroblastoma, its always there, the side effects are definitely always there but it doesn’t deserve attention, just the side effects we’re always going to have to deal with.

I did pass my driving test for the first time with only 6 faults!

We also gained another family. who i hope we can make memories with in 2018.

Riley started Reception in school & is enjoying learning new things AND! We marked a full year in remission!!
