Treatments include chemotherapy, surgery and radiation.
He has suffered so many set backs since being diagnosed i.e. two major spinal operations, intense daily physiotherapy learning to walk again, contracting MRSA super bug, followed this week by a further plastics surgery to close the wound on his back – all this before embarking on an 18 month regime of chemo cycles and radiation therapy.
