Super Theo's Story October 2022

Instead of starting school, Theo was starting chemotherapy...

Super Theo’s Journey

This is Super Theo’s story in the words of his family: “Theo was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia when he was only four years old. Our world was turned upside down in an instant. On the day he was meant to start school, he began three years of gruelling chemo treatment. The medicines made his body swell up, his hair fall out and he became quiet and withdrawn. Theo now only has eight months of treatment to go and he has amazed us all by his bravery, optimism and determination to carry on as normal a life as possible.” What a trooper you are, Theo!

Super Theo’s Diagnosis

The Supershoes

Theo’s passion is the game Fortnite. So this is exactly what he got on his Supershoes, courtesy of Super Artist Steve. As you can see, they were a huge success. The message came from Theo’s family: “Theo is absolutely over the moon with his Supershoes designed by Steve!!! We’ve just given them to him now (we were going to keep them until he finishes treatment in November but his feet are growing at an alarming rate so thought we better do it now!!). Thank you so, so much!” You are so welcome, Theo! Theo 3
