Some facts about my treatment:

During his treatment Finn endured over 70 anaesthetics for surgeries, scans, urological procedures etc. Our whole family had to travel to Boston for two months for specialized radiation treatment and later we went to Spokane for a specialized medical procedure that gave us another magical month.

That Finn was the boy who lived with cancer, not the boy who died. That Finn never lost a battle ever

My favourite day was

Far too many to count.

The worst thing about having cancer
