A brave young man

1st April 2013

The young boy you are about to watch is Deryn who is 13 from Watton. He has Langerhans Cell Sarcoma AND Leukaemia, he is the ONLY person in the world to have these two cancers at the same time.

He is in a Bristol Hospital at the moment where one month ago today he had a bone marrow transplant, which they 'hope' will work. This is his last and only option!

Despite his situation Deryn is always smiling and this video of his transplant shows his determination and just how amazing he really is.

I've invited Deryn to KL.FM as soon as he is fit enough to perform this song at our studios without the tubes and wires live on the radio.

 

His story has attracted worldwide media attention already click here for more.

 

Get well soon fella!
