Jonah's Story

Meet Jonah

Jonah is five years old when he was just two he started his treatment for a type of cancer called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Over the years he has gone through Intravenous chemotherapy, chemotherapy into his spine, oral chemotherapy, oral steroids, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, multiple antibiotics both orally and IV.

Jonah receives his daily cocktails of medications, and on days that he is feeling strong enough he really enjoys going to school and spending time with his friends. More typically, he is at home. On those days he needs lots of rest and to have his legs kept warm as they get very painful and he has muscle wastage. He likes to lie on the sofa and play lego, read books about superheroes, and watch DVD's about his favourite heroes.

His favourite games are:

Lego
Superhero movies
Comic books
Playstation games
Skylanders

Fortunately for Jonah and his family, his treatment has been successful and he is coming to the end of it all. His Mum says "It would be the perfect gift for us all to celebrate the winding down of a relentless and punishing chemotherapy schedule over the last 3 years. It would be something we could treasure and it would be such a treat to have photos of Jonah looking relatively well."
