We received this incredibly moving letter from Rachel, a mother whose family was supported through a sudden diagnosis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Rachel has given her permission for us to share this letter.
I am writing to you to sincerely thank you for your support over the last year.
Last March our youngest son, Cole was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukaemia – a rare type of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). He underwent ten months of intense chemotherapy involving arsenic trioxide, ACTRA and lumbar chemo.
We alternated between five days a week intense chemo and twice-weekly intense chemo at Addenbrookes Hospital – an hour away from our home.
