This is Kian. He is 12 years old and has a germ cell brain tumour. Since finding out, he has had 2 major brain surgeries, 3 months of chemotherapy and 7 weeks of intense radiotherapy. The prognosis is very good and he has a very strong chance of being cured.
Kian loves playing football, going out with friends and going to watch Shrewsbury Town play. He also supports Tottenham Hotspur. He enjoys playing on his Xbox - Call of Duty and Fifa being his favourite games. He also enjoys listening to his iPod.
A typical day would be school, which he has manage to attend as much as possible throughout all his treatment, come home and go straight out with friends, there are days where he is too tired to go out and he will stay home but he tries his best to carry on as much as possible with life as much as he did before being diagnosed.
We have been through a really tough year and we have managed to get through it as a family. Having photos of us all as a family will show and remind us how close and happy we still all are after everything and give us something to look at. Hopefully it will show how much stronger we are as a family and to show Kian how far he has come in the past 10 months.
Thank you to Paul Jones from www.facebook.com/pauljonesphoto / www.pauljonesphoto.co.uk who added "I guess in common with most photographers getting involved with families such as this it is quite humbling. To see how an ordinary family have faced unimaginable stress in the face of life threatening illness and come out the other side is inspiring to say the least. Kian is such a matter of fact lad I can't believe how well he has coped and thank goodness things now seem to be looking more positive."
