Since 2011 our whole town has come together for a brave little soldier. No matter what this little boy has gone through he still smiles and melts all our heart's. This little boy is very poorly and yesterday his parents received devastating news.

The answer

Such a sad tragic story. It is so wonderful that the local community is really thinking about the little boy and his family. I really hope this gives them a little comfort. We are very lucky to live in the UK, where the NHS provides one of the best healthcare systems in the world. It is most likely that all possible treatments have been given already, but have sadly not worked. Unfortunately not all cancers are curable. That is the same all over the world, no matter what country you go to for treatment.
