Leeanne's eldest son Zak was diagnosed with Stage 4 high-risk Neuroblastoma, 1 week before his 3rd Birthday in 2015. Zak was treated at The Royal Hospital, Belfast and in December 2016 was no evidence of disease. The family were supported by Solving Kids' Cancer throughout Zak's treatment to fundraise to access the DFMO trial in Michigan. Zak completed the trial in January 2019 and his scans have remained clear since. 

Leeanne lives in Belfast with her husband Gareth and two children Zak and Amelia. Zak is now 8 years old, in Primary 4 and living his best life. 

 

"Solving Kids' Cancer took the pressure off us when we most needed it as a family enabling us to give Zak our full attention. They were always there to answer any questions we had or just to support us as a family".
