Category: Bilbo’s Journey
To fully understand The Henry Allen Trust magic you need to understand what they do and how they spread happiness during dark times for cancer families.
We’re very aware that whilst things have been good for the last few weeks and we’ve been checking off milestones, we’re still living with cancer.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, since October 29th we’ve been a family who are only too familiar with childhood cancer.
As we surpass 300 days of cancer we’re learning another new normal. Somedays cancer feels like a bad dream and other days it continues to be our living nightmare.
Last week we began maintenance the 5th and final stage of Bilbo’s chemo treatment. We’ve come so far and yet this is just the beginining of a long journey.
In the Godber household we’ve been waiting for two very important things and the wait is over!!! Harrison is three and we start maintenance on Wednesday.
Day 260: It seemed too good to be true and it was. Bilbo was admitted into hospital on Saturday a stark reminder of how quickly an infection can take hold.
Day 253: We’ve done it, today Bilbo completed delayed intensification he had his last ever vincristine and it’s been quite the emotional rollercoaster.
The countdown is on, we have marked some more milestones. There are less than 1000 days of treatment left and we’re two weeks away from finishing DI.
Day 234 I am showing gratitude. I’m grateful because 234 days ago something as normal as a sports day felt so far away. And today Bilbo smashed it!
