THE Isle of Wight NHS Trust invited four-year-old Rayn back to St Mary’s Hospital to ‘ring the bell’ to signal the end of his cancer treatment.

Rayn Thomson, from Ryde, has been receiving treatment for a myofibroblastic tumour, which has meant he has had to have IV chemotherapy every week for six months, then every other week for a further six months.

Most of his treatment has been at St Mary’s Hospital, with some treatment in Southampton.

Rayn was only one when he first began treatment, and his family found out that he needed to have chemotherapy just before he turned three.

Rebecca, Rayn's mum, said it had been the hardest year of her family’s lives, but she is grateful for Rayn's care.

Rebecca said: “It was a very scary time for us, but the care and support we have received on the Island has been absolutely second to none.

“The care has been so personal, and it’s the little things that have helped us get through week by week.

“Staff remembering the stickers he liked and how he liked his observations done and always bringing things they knew he liked out with them on home visits helped so much.

“The team at St. Mary’s have become an extension of our family, and we are really going to miss them.

“They are incredible, and we are super grateful to each and every one of them.”

A spokesperson from the Isle of Wight NHS Trust said: “We're delighted to hear that Rayn is doing well and is able to start doing fun things again, such as swimming, which he enjoys and hasn’t been able to do.”
