Alex Warne’s Amazing Cancer Research Story

Alex Warne is one of many real Cancer Research UK success stories Alex was just 6 years old when he was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Leukaemia back in 2003 after his parents noticed he had lost a lot of energy and had aches in his legs. After being diagnosed, intensive chemotherapy treatment was started for a full year.

After this, Alex then underwent over two years if maintenance chemotherapy, which saw Alex wheelchair bound for much of the treatment.

The fantastic news is Alex is now back at school and playing the sports he loves whilst taking part in creative writing sessions which has seen the creation of ‘The Heaven Flower’ story, which was published in 2010

Alex’s mum, Julie, said –

Alex is such an amazing teenager. I want other kids who are going through cancer to be inspired by Alex. But we will never have our carefree life back again – if there is even a slight problem of illness with Alex, I switch to the day of diagnosis again.
