Super Percy's Story

Super Percy's Story July 2021

Percy's family describe him as a true hero, after an unexpected diagnosis left him facing gruelling treatment.

Super Percy’s Journey

Percy’s mum tells us that Percy had been experiencing pain in his back for a while. No-one expected the devastating diagnosis of Ewing’s sarcoma, which meant that Percy had to have emergency spinal surgery, followed by chemotherapy and Proton beam therapy. Percy still has several rounds of chemo to go, and his mum says he is a true hero. Percy’s favourite things painted on his Supershoes have certainly cheered him up: look at that lovely smile! Sending you lots of love, Percy!

Super Percy’s Diagnosis

Around 30-40 children are diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in the UK each year. It usually occurs in the teenage years and is more prevalent in boys. Find out more about Ewings Sarcoma

The Supershoes

Super Artist Aimee did a great job of the Supershoes, including Percy’s favourites: Roblox and Fortnite on his shoes as well as Toothless from Troll Hunters.
