“Elliot would stay at Ciaran’s house, with his Dad, while I stayed with his brother Aaron in hospital during his treatments. Being so close to the hospital meant if Aaron was well enough he could escape the ward to a safe, clean place and sit with his brother on the Xbox. The boys loved this time they spent together away from the hospital. The four of us being together was also special.” Marianne, Mum to Aaron, diagnosed aged eleven.
