Harry’s story seven years on.

I pinched this off my sister to share with those of you who have followed Harry’s story.


“8th April. Harry's cancerversary. The day the word retinoblastoma became a reality. The day Harry's life started on a very different path than the one we had planned for him. We sometimes felt like we were lost, that the path was disappearing but then Harry found it again and has stayed on it with confidence and bravery that I am so proud of. I have often said Harry has defined his cancer and when you see him achieve amazing things every word is true. His life may be a little different, he will forever be labelled as different but he laughs in the face of visual impairment. He is accessing everything he needs through Braille, computers and technology. So yes, 8th April will always be tough, but not as tough as Harry 💕💕
