Grayson battling on

Last year, the community rose up to support Grayson Swann, a Waiuku youngster diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
We were sent this photo from Grayson’s mum, Angela, who said that he is doing very well with his treatment, six months on. Last week he started delayed intensification.
The Post Newspaper has been following Grayson’s journey. At three years old, his mum noticed bruises on his legs that wouldn’t go away and following her intuition took him to the doctor for further check ups. With his white blood cell count ‘through the roof’, Grayson was taken to Starship Hospital where he spent nine nights there, being tested and then beginning chemotherapy in August 2017. He still has a way to go, but Angela says, “”He is handling it like a champ.”
All the best Grayson!
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
