Hi everyone,
Thank you for all your beautiful messages over the past months and the support on my posts when I have posted.

It is with extreme sadness that I inform you that despite undergoing the 6 weeks of radiation, Benjamin's cancer spread to his entire spinal cord. We then did 4 palliative and pain relief radiation sessions.

Sadly though on the 8th of July he had a stroke and commenced a series of seizures, and on Saturday July 9 at Very Special Kids he grew his angel wings and passed to a better place.

In the weeks leading up up to his passing he had spent time at VSK and once he came home he was in the best physical heath and and his pain was controlled to the best level as it had been in months so his final week at home was filled with love and interacting with his family. I still believe had it not been for the stroke he would still be with us as he was enjoying things again, eating and drinking and starting to do things again.

Fly free baby boy, Cancer did not beat you, though sadly your brain was simply to strong and itching to fight and fought itself instead.

Again Thank you. xxxx
