THE mother of a three-year-old toddler who received life-saving cancer treatment in the US has revealed “he is doing well”.
Brave Fletcher Falvey, from Torrox, was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant brain tumour last year.
But a successful appeal raised the necessary 130,000 euros to pay for the pioneering ‘Proton therapy’ treatment in Indiana.
And, after returning to the local Spanish school in January, Fletcher’s recovery has so far been positive.
“He has come on leaps and bounds since we got back from America, he is now talking and is a pleasure to be around,” said Andrea.
“He has to have an MRI scan every two months and the two undertaken so far have both come back clear.”
