IT has been a long year for the Field family.
A year ago their youngest son, Oliver, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma – an aggressive form of cancer – when he was just eight months old.
But having endured constant injections, operations and endless hours in a hospital, the toddler has now completed his treatment.
And, fingers crossed, the Dalton family will find out within three weeks if he is free of the disease.
Oliver’s mum, Laura, is delighted to see her son acting like a normal little boy again.
She said: “We have just given him his last dose of medication which was a very nice feeling.
“It is lovely be able to take him to the playground or see him have fun with other children and join in games.
“He hasn’t been able to do that for a year through fear that he will pick up something as he has been so susceptible to infection.
“We have just returned from a week away at a caravan organised by the charity we have been working with.
“And it was lovely to be able to enjoy our time without worrying about a hospital appointment.
“We are hoping that we will get to enjoy a lot more time like this in the future.
“We took so many pictures of him having fun.
