Tonight, BaBa and Mummy went to our first Cure Our Kids Parents Gathering dinner at North Ryde. Cure Our Kids is a charity that specifically looks after children with cancer and their families at Westmead Hospital, and it was great to meet other parents who had been through the cancer journey with their children and to share stories.
We were very encouraged to learn that some children have been in remission for 5 years or more - we sat next to a couple whose son had beaten 3 different types of cancers, who had a bone marrow transplant in 2001, and who has been in remission since . It was also good to catch up with other parents who had been in hospital with us last year, and to hear how their children are going with their treatment.
As to what Jeremy thought about Mummy not being there to tuck him in - well, that's between him and GooPaw!
