I took my little boy for a routine 12 mth check up 3 days before he was to turn a year.This changed our lives forever cos we were met by the most devastating news that he was diagnosed with ALL-LEUKEMIA.He showed absolutely no signs/symptoms.Our biggest nitemare has began.Just checking if there are any other mums who are dealing with the same unfortune that we were dealt with.And just a word to other mums please make sure your kids go for their checkups we were lucky as we caught it early.He is currently receiving chemo, he is responding well.He is ok,mummy is not coping at all though.

thks. No symtoms other than the odd fever but like any other 12 mth old he's teething so a little panado and he's fine.They asked if there were any bruisind/swelling/infections/fevers/lethargy but he showed none of them.The pead did say his spleen was a bigger than it should be and he was a bit pale.

Hoping everything goes really well and that he makes a full recovery. Don't even know you but you and your family are in my thoughts.

How did they catch it if there were no symptoms? I am so sorry to hear about your son's illness and my prayers are with you and your family.
