About - Finn M

Story Written 2017

Finn was diagnosed with ALL on the 20.10.2015 after an earache that refused to get better. He was just 3 years old. Our GP sent us to our local hospital and they diagnosed Finn in an hour.  We were transferred to Piam Brown at Southampton two days later. They confirmed Finn’s diagnosis with a bone marrow procedure. He started treatment the same day.

Sadly Finn had a reaction to the Vincristine and became very poorly. We spent literally the whole of induction in Piam Brown, seven very long weeks. Finns consultant later informed me that it was one of the trickiest ALL inductions that Piam Brown had faced.

My other son Archie, 8 at the time, suffered enormously. It was a very dark time in our family life.

Finn is now thankfully in remission and in the maintained phase of treatment.

We hope to remain positive over the next 3 years and try to live a normal life as much as possible although Finn has to have chemo every day.
