Today is Bilbo’s birthday, every extra year we have with him is a gift we never take for granted. October is also the month where it all began.
Category: Bilbo’s Journey
Bilbo’s Journey is about our journey and how we are dealing with having a child with cancer.
In October 2018 it was with the heaviest of hearts, we shared the news our amazing gorgeous Bilbo, had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) aged 5 years old.
We were overwhelmed with love and kindness from across our friendship groups, our family and complete strangers. Bilbo started his joint care under the amazing team on the Kamran ward at John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford and Milton Keynes General. In March 2021 we made the life changing decision to move to Devon. The wonderful team at Royal Devon & Exeter will take care of Bilbo through his last year of treatment.
Godbers Travel was a travel blog, a living breathing online memory book for our boys. And seemed like a natural place to update our family, friends and well wishers across the world. We see this as an unexpected journey we need to complete before our normal travel can resume.
I hope you will find our posts honest and frank as we try to give you insight into what life is like for a family and child with cancer.
