Harris Morrison's Neuroblastoma journey

Harris Morrison aged 6 years and his young journey so far………….

As a family they were planning the build up to Hogmanay and looking forward to toasting in the New Year 2020 with family as is tradition in Scotland. Their wee boy, Harris hadn’t been too well during late November and December 2019. They had been to their local GP as long-standing issues with constipation, which was becoming quite severe. On Monday 30th December 2019 they went for a planned check up with the families GP, who was concerned at wee Harris’ worsening condition. Without any hesitation the GP admitted Harris to hospital in Inverness some two hours drive away. They urgently packed for what they assumed was a short hospital visit of a couple of days but erred on the side of caution giving the impending New Year holidays and took enough clothing for three days. It is now July 2020 and the family haven’t been home since. On the 31st December Harris had numerous tests X-ray's scans and Ultrasounds. It was after a review of the latter by the medical team that revealed an unexplained growth near Harris stomach. In the matter of minutes their world began to crumble around them. It wasn’t clear at the time whether the growth was a tumour. Was it benign or malignant?

The answer required another journey this time of three hours drive to the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital. They were seen by a consultant on the immediate arrival just as the clocks welcomed in midnight and the Bells sounded for the New Year. What had been their plans for Hogmanay, were now irrelevant. After initial examinations and review the general feeling was the tumour was malignant and Wee Harris was now a cancer patient, he had only been admitted for trapped wind and constipation!

It was after a few days that Harris Morrison's Neuroblastoma supportthey received the exact cancer diagnosis, Harris has stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma. They were now confronted with terminology, procedures and treatments that they had never heard of and life had changed immeasurably for the whole family.

Family and work priorities come into focus, goals are altered, and treatment becomes all that matters. They had entered a new kind of living far from home but Aberdeen had become their new home 

As you can only imagine the financial strain this journey is having and will have on the family through this difficult time, while they concentrate on getting Harris better.
