Lachy is one-year cancer free

Lachlan was a happy baby who slept and fed well. At 18 months, Lachy developed fevers, vomiting and general tiredness. Initially believed to be a virus, doctors discovered Lachy had an 11 cm tumour in his abdomen. Within days he was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma, which had spread to his bone marrow.
