A courageous youngster who was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition just weeks after starting school has finally returned to the classroom after two years of gruelling treatment.
Logan North, six, of Collins Road, Bamber Bridge, near Preston, was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma just three weeks after starting at St Mary and St Benedict’s School.
Since then, he has endured surgery, high dose chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy and immunotherapy treatment in a desperate fight to beat the illness.
Logan, who became one of the first youngsters in the country to be accepted on a trial cancer treatment programme at Liverpool’s Alder Hey Hospital, has now finally made his comeback to school, although he is initially only doing two hours a day.
Mum Amanda says it is lovely to see Logan have some normality back in his life and spend time with children his own age.
She said: “Logan has never really been to school properly as he had just started when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
“He has missed two years of school, but now he has finished all his treatment, he has started school again.
“He is only doing two hours a day at the moment to get him used to the routine. He should be in Year Two, but has started in Year One.
“Logan is finding it very tiring, but when he is there, he loves being with his friends. It is great seeing him have some normality back in his life.
“Because of everything he has been through, he has got used to being with adults, but at last, he can spend time with people his own age.”
Tests have revealed Logan still has low level cancer and he is having regular check ups.
