We have set up a fund in Leo's name to support Young Lives vs Cancer after they helped us so very much from the day Leo was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3 back in May 2008.
Since then, as a family, we had decided to really focus on getting Leo well, both physically and mentally, so as he could try to carve out a fantastic and healthier life for himself.
Leo has made awesome strides in his graphic design and especially his animation skills. Disney Pixar needs to have him on their radar (and that's not just a very boastful mum talking there - he really is talented).
It seems the parts of his brain which were damaged by the radiotherapy, meant that academic life and all the learning disabilities which came with it, have made school somewhat challenging. We knew that if Leo survived, life could be different from what we'd envisaged and how his peers would be able to express themselves and thrive in school.
However, given he's a stubborn so-and-so, as we well know from his grit and survival from super-aggressive cancer, Leo has found his own journey to thriving in life. He has spent much of lockdown, literally locked down in his office, self-teaching all sorts of animations techniques including jiggle physics.
