Wesburn parents Dale Haggar and Sarah Spencer set up the page “Two hearts, one battle … neuroblastoma” after their son, Max, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma 4s in September this year.

Max’s cancer started in the adrenal gland, and had enlarged his liver – next to his twin, Charli, Max’s abdomen is much larger from the tumour.

At the time of diagnosis, the Haggar family set up a Facebook page to help family and friends keep up to date with Max’s treatment and condition – as well as to help raise awareness of the cancer.

The page amassed more than 600 likes in the space of a month, and the couple said there had been an “overwhelming” response, with a flood of messages offering support, food drop-offs and kind words.

Max’s treatment has commenced with a low dosage of chemotherapy initially to try and reduce the size of the tumour. Now all they can do is wait and see if the treatment will do the job in reducing the tumour or whether they will need to increase the dosage for a better result.
