Boy diagnosed with aggressive cancer weeks before 4th birthday
A "fit and healthy" young boy who showed no signs of being ill was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer just weeks after his fourth birthday - after a routine blood test. Oliver Stephenson went for a check-up after his parents suspected he may be anaemic, but just 48 hours later he had been diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma. Little Oliver, who lives with his two-year-old brother Alfie, was taken in for a blood test on January 16 when his parents Laura and James noticed he was looking pale and tired.
