Logan's Story

Logan’s Brother Lee, tells us Logan’s story

When Logan was 4 years old shortly after starting reception he was often unwell with viral infections and coughs he had several visits to his GP which would always result in him having a viral infection, he was also sleeping more after school and it became more frequent, one day he was so much worse than usual he was so pale with small dark bruising over his body, he was taken to A&E who checked him over and told us he was going to get tonsillitis and if he was no better in 2 weeks come back, he rapidly became worse and only 7 hours he was taken back to A&E where more tests was conducted and they told us he had suspected leukaemia and we was transferred to RMCH straight away to start treatment

He was just 4 years old when he was diagnosed with B cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, he was really unwell the first 6 months with infections and he contracted pneumonia due to the intense treatment, Logan went into remission and  he was in remission until June 2016 when he relapsed with T cell Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, he also had a tumour on his lung which was really uncommon to relapse with a different type of leukaemia  he went into remission again and was due to have a bone marrow transplant on the 29th November 2016, as he was unwell for 2 week prior to BMT he had a MRI which showed he had fluid on his brain caused by a posteria fossa tumour, Logan had 3 operations within that first week to remove some of the rumour, Logan wasn’t expected to survive the surgery and they had very serious concerns that he wouldn’t, but Logan did and he was still as cheeky as ever,  he also needed Radiotherapy and had 5 sessions at The Christie

We was discharged from RMCH On 20th December to have Christmas at home, on the 22nd Logan was admitted to hospital in Wigan as he was having some issues breathing but again was discharged on the 23rd, we arrived home at 7:30pm Macmillan nurses was at ours to help us with coming events, the nurses spoke to us and helped us to calm Logan down and they left our home at 20.25 and Logan took his last breath very peacefully with all our family at his side
