Biography

Eric was diagnosed when he was 1 and a half years old.
Some symptoms were there for a few months but my husband and I never thought we would be in this type of situation so couldn't pin down what was going on. Eric had eczema since he was 3 months old and I was advised to take some items from my diet because I was still breastfeeding. When we took him to the GP with all his lymph nodes enlarged they said it was probably just some reaction from his allergies.

A few months later Eric stopped walking. We went to A&E and as soon as the doctor looked at him he asked me if he was always that pale. After x-rays of his legs and chest they collect some blood. We are so grateful that the doctor that saw us was so fast on the right tests. From there everything started, Eric needed blood and platelet transfusions straight away.

This journey is tough but all the amazing people that we are meeting on the way make everything more bearable. Eric is an amazing 4 year old boy with so much ahead of him. His life is just beginning and I'm sure will be fantastic.
