Some facts about my treatment:
In August of 2005, four-year-old Dayton Blampied was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. After two intense rounds of chemotherapy Dayton received a bone marrow biopsy and the first good news in weeks. To everyone’s relief, Dayton’s bone marrow was cancer-free, meaning he could be his own donor in the transplant that would clean the cancer from his system and save his life.
By July of 2006, Dayton had received eight rounds of chemotherapy, surgery to remove the tumour from his kidney and a bone marrow transplant followed by over 30 days in isolation. After a lifetime’s worth of suffering, Dayton finally came home to his relieved family and got right back into being his playful self. Dayton has had a tough struggle, but thanks to his family and the caregivers at Children’s Hospital, Dayton is out doing the things that he loves most, like fishing and playing Nintendo Wii with his friends.
