Our precious little boy, Oscar, was diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma (an extremely rare and aggressive childhood cancer) on 30th November 2011. Every parent would say their child is "one in a million", but Oscar truly is one in ten billion (see Oscar's Story). This blog is to update our many friends and family members who are supporting us and brave little Oscar as we face this challenge head on and fight it day by day...
The popularity of the #TeamOscar wristbands has taken us totally by surprise!! We are amazed to see so many people showing their support for Oscar by wearing the wristband, including some high profile people pictured above. If you are on Twitter, please keep tweeting us pictures of you wearing your wristbands, we will retweet all the best ones! :-)
