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!
