Just over a year after his diagnosis of cancer a Bridlington youngster has celebrated his birthday with a special party attended by family and friends.
Ronnie Kemp-Duke , who is now five, was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in August last year and has been undergoing intensive chemotherapy and stem cell treatments at Leeds.
His dad, Vaughne Kemp, said: “ Just over a year ago we had the devastating news little Ronnie had stage 4 neuroblastoma. He’s had a hectic year, often very poorly with stem cell treatment and chemotherapy.”
Vaughn added: “He missed Christmas due to high doses of chemotherapy, then radiotherapy followed and now a course of immunotherapy. He’s still got a very long road ahead, but we celebrated his birthday with a wonderful party. He is such an inspiration and the bravest boy I have ever met. He never moans and never gives in to anything – he just take it step by step and he is my little hero.”
The Echo and all our readers and followers wish Ronnie a very happy fifth birthday and best wishes for his future.
