Story

[p]Sam passed away on the 4th of April 2019, a few weeks short of his 8th Birthday. Sam had been battling Leukaemia under the care of Great Ormond Street and Watford Hospital since Dec 2015 and had been in remission for over 2 years before he relapsed in June 2018. Sam received further treatment and a bone marrow transplant at GOSH on the 24th October 2019. He was once again in remission and recovering at home when he was cruelly taken from us by an aggressive infection. [/p][p]Sam was brave and courageous, having battled cancer for almost half his life. His attitude to the 100's of procedures he's endured was inspirational, "let's just get it over with". Regardless of whether he was having a cannula, suffering the symptoms of chemotherapy or radiotherapy or having surgery, it wouldn't be long before his wry smile and chuckle would return. Thanks to Spread a Smile, we were able to enjoy a few theatre trips in between treatment, and would look forward to Thursdays when fairies and magicians funded by Spread a Smile were on the ward. The memories of these trips and visits are priceless and we hope that donations in Sam's memory will ensure other families in a similar position benefit too.[/p][p]Sam story is an unlucky one. There are approximately 400 children a year diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). Over 90% of children with ALL are now cured, using medicines that are tolerated well. In Sam's case despite being at low risk, he relapsed. The conditioning in preparation for a bone marrow transplant are a lot more toxic and the side effects from the radiotherapy would have impacted Sam for the rest of his life. We hope the donations to the Leukaemia Research Fund (SL01) at GOSH will help directly fund the research into childhood cancer being done by the Dr's that treated Sam, improving the outcome and reducing the side effects of the treatment. Our hope is that one day nobody has to endure the loss of their child from Leukaemia.[/p][p]We love you Sam and will never forget you. x[/p]
