About - Finley J


Story Written 2018

Finley was diagnosed on 1st March 2016, aged 6 years, with anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Like all lymphomas, it’s a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s immune system.
A programme was immediately put into place and Finley started intense chemotherapy which lasted for six months. Finley responded really well to treatment and he rang the End of Treatment Bell on 11th August 2016 and was in remission for 15 months with bi-monthly visits back to the hospital for check ups.
On 11th October 2017 it was sadly confirmed that Finley had relapsed and the cancer was back. This time his treatment programme will continue for two years with chemotherapy treatment once a week. You can follow Finley’s Journey here, we will be posting regular updates of his treatments and what he is getting up to as a normal everyday 7 year old boy!

Update 6th March 2018

Finley has been staying in hospital more than expected the last few months, as he kept spiking temperatures and was unwell with infections in his central line. His consultants made the decision early February to have surgery and remove his central line and give him a 2 week break before putting in a new one. Finley now has a new line but this time he has gone for the Port. Since this has been done Finley has been feeling a lot better and has a bit more energy.
Finley is still not back to school but hoping he will be able to go back half days in the next few weeks.
Finley is currently having home schooling when he doesn’t have to be at hospital which he is enjoying.
