Super William’s Journey
There is no doubt that Super William is very deserving of his Supershoes! He is one incredibly brave little boy following a diagnosis in March 2019 of Medulloblastoma, a brain tumour that had also spread down his spine. Since diagnosis, William has faced gruelling treatment including a biopsy, five and a half intensive chemotherapy courses, a stem cell blood harvest, brain surgery, more high dose course of chemo and stem cell transplants and lots of blood transfusions. While going through all this, William caught chicken pox shingles, e-coli, a fungal infection, developed sepsis and has had to learn to walk again. William’s mum told us that despite all of this William keeps on smiling.
Following a recent scan in June, the family has been told the very sad news that the doctors are unable to cure William of cancer. This incredibly brave and inspirational family is taking each day as it comes, finding ways to help William feel really happy.
Super William is a huge inspiration to us all. He never gives up and despite all the challenges he battles on always with a smile on his face.
