Some families who have faced huge challenges come out the other side stronger, battling for others not to have to go through the same experience.
This week the family of six-year-old Bermondsey boy Cavell Neavin spoke to the News about his brave fight against brain cancer.
Their story, of how Cavell’s symptoms emerged and developed from complaints of a headache at the age of just three, will touch the hearts of many readers.
Young Cavell suffered sight loss because of the illness, his eyes stayed in a fixed downwards position.
But he is now thriving at school and making up for lost time.
His family are now asking businesses and locals to take part in Glow Gold September, a campaign to make the public aware of childhood cancer.
They are also hoping to hold a fundraising event to buy portable DVD players for children who are suffering the same kind of sight problems as Cavell had.
Some people come out of such adversity stronger, and this seems so for Cavell’s family.
Help them raise awareness and money, if you can.
