I really feel for this mum as do all parents, wether to have her son go through intense Radiotherepy (RT). I myself have had this 4 years ago and still have huge problems from the treatment, I was 49 when those six letters were spoken to me and at the time was a fit stocky man and thats the only thing that helped me through. Four other unlucky souls that went through the same treatment as myself are sadley not here. I chose not to research into the side effects because it frightened me, it has been and still is a long hard lonely road for anyone to have to travel down and my heart really goes out to anyone who have or are still travelling this road. I would not like to be in the Judges Chair on this one or anyone who has to make that decision on behalf of the child, any RT to the head area does have serious issues on your quality of life, its a big struggle for a healthy adult so I can relate to this unfortunate mother with her fears. What ever the out come on is with relation to treatment, I really hope it goes well. Sorry fOr anY spelling or grammer issues its taken me a while to write, my memory is not wot is was.
