Callum Davie was 7 years old and lived in Harold Hill, Essex. He was first diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at 18 months old and went through nearly 4 years of chemotherapy treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). During periods of infection Callum was regularly admitted to Queens Hospital Romford and when he wasn't an in-patient he would need to travel to hospital regularly for his blood counts to be monitored. Callum had a difficult time while on chemo, suffering complications such as a stroke, blood clots on the brain and contracting Swine Flu, which resulted in him being admitted to GOSH Intensive Care Unit. However, Callum's fighting spirit shone through and he finally got the all-clear at 5 years old. But within a year the cancer came back and he underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant at Great Ormond Street.
Sadly a few months on and Callum contracted the disease again in several different places as well as picking up three major infections and we lost our little mate in early July 2015.
This young man was truly an insipration to his peers and he will never be forgotten.
