Boy, two, beats 'one in a million' chance cancer

The family of a two-year-old boy diagnosed with a one-in-a-million form of liver cancer have raised £10,000 for the charity that helped them through the toughest year of their lives.

Brave Kobey Muller has been battling hepatoblastoma since January. The rare childhood cancer only affects one in a million babies and toddlers.

Doting dad Jordan Muller, of Old Mill Lane in Bray, first noticed his son was unwell after his stomach was getting larger.

Following repeated visits to Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, he was told they suspected he had a tumour on his liver. The cancer was confirmed at King's College Hospital in London.

Jordan, a former pupil at Desborough School in Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead, said: "It felt like the world was ending. It was absolutely devastating."

After completing 10 chemotherapy sessions at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford he underwent an operation to remove the tumour at the Birmingham Children's Hospital.

A charity ball was on held on Saturday at the Monkey Island Hotel to raise money for charity CLIC Sargent which supported the family throughout their journey.

The black-tie dinner, which also featured an auction and raffle, raised £10,000.

Kobey is now in remission but will be monitored for the next five years.
