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).

We’ve been overwhelmed with love and kindness from across our friendship groups, our family and complete strangers. We are under the Kamran ward team at John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford. We are getting the very best possible care.

To stop us from having to repeat and tell so many people pretty exhausting news and updates we’re updating those who want to know through our blog. Godbers Travel was a travel blog, a living breathing online memory book for our boys. 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.

Day 110: The Mother of All Meltdowns

Last night the feelings, the worry, the tears, the anxiety about cancer all came pouring out. It was 1am and I broke, I had the mother of all meltdowns.

Day 88: Gratitude

When we see the facebook pictures of you giving blood, the donations coming in I know that we are loved. Bilbo is loved. And with that love we are going to fight this bastard cancer.

CLIC Sargent – Young Lives vs Cancer

At the CLIC Sargent roadshow on Friday I was overwhelmed by the sheer energy, passion and drive the entire room has for supporting young people with cancer and their families.

My Other Son…

I’ve been wanting to write something for a while now about my other son. The one who doesn’t have Leukaemia. His name is Harrison and he’s 2 and a half years old. As the brother of a child with cancer, he is suffering too.

75 Days of Cancer…

Today marks 75 days of Cancer. And you’d be forgiven for believing we are a “normal” family. Except we aren’t normal and whilst we can try and believe that for a split second, there are so many things that bring us back to “cancer reality”
