My son, Sebbie, is 4 years old – he’s an amazing character and is a cheeky little monkey!

When he was just 2, he was diagnosed with a cancer-like condition. He's had to endure lots of chemotherapy. 

It was a low dose at first but he's just finished a particularly hard period of steroid treatment and is now undergoing a more intense chemo every three weeks, for four days at a time.
