Isaac Fell rings the End of Treatment Bell's bell at Peterborough City Hospital
After almost three and a half years of surgery and chemotherapy, a young Tallington cancer survivor officially marked the end of his treatment.
Isaac Fell, 12, rang the End of Treatment Bell's bell at Peterborough City Hospital on Friday (May 31), coincidently just before National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday (June 2).
Isaac, who is in year 8 at Stamford School, suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia after first being diagnosed in February 2016.
He was joined by his proud family, including mum Liz, dad Simon and brother Noah, 10.
Liz, said: “Celebrating Isaac’s end of treatment was a wonderful experience – after more than three years of treatment, we often wondered if this day would ever come but seeing Isaac ring the bell and finally say goodbye to cancer was absolutely surreal and an emotional high for our family.
“We are so thankful for the amazing care he has had throughout his cancer journey.
“We are grateful to the staff at Peterborough Hospital and the work of charities like Children with Cancer UK – which works hard to improve cure rates, reduce treatment side effects and also provides special days out to families affected by cancer.
“Our family has had so many incredible experiences through Children with Cancer UK and these memories will last a lifetime.”
The sporty Fell family have raised over £20,000 for the charity through events such as the London Marathon and Vitality 10,000.
