Chester mum to start Race For Life
Noah was just 13-months-old when he was diagnosed with an aggressive for of cancer.
Noah's mum Nia Williams has been telling Heart that he had been off his food and so she'd tempted him to eat by feeding him prunes, a food he loved but left him with diarrhoea and wind.
Nia took Noah to the doctor the following day blaming herself for having fed him the prunes.
However, when the GP was examining Noah, he felt a distinct swelling in his stomach and sent him immediately to the Countess of Chester Hospital for an ultrasound scan
Following scans, blood tests and a biopsy at Alder Hey Hospital in Merseyside, Noah was diagnosed with a type of cancer called “neuroblastoma”.
Neuroblastoma is a cancer of nerve cells left behind from a baby’s development in the womb. Around 90 children are diagnosed with the disease each year in Britain.
In Noah’s case, the tumour was growing on his adrenal gland, behind his kidney and had attached to his urethra.
Noah, who is an only child, began an immediate course of chemotherapy in a bid to shrink the tumour. He was also placed on a Cancer Research UK funded clinical trial.
Nia and Noah will be starting the Chester Race for Life on June 23rd.
