At the age of two, Max Wenman was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, and after more than a year of rigorous treatments to fight the disease, it all came down to last week, as brave little Max underwent tests to see if the treatment had worked.
After five trips to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin for a variety of scans and tests, Max returned with some amazing news - he is cancer free!
“It’s better than winning the Lotto” beams Max’s mother, Cathy Bermingham. To commemorate the occasion, Cathy had a special t-shirt made for Max, stating; “Look at me I’m cancer free”.
Cathy happily reports that though they have another visit to the consultant in October to discuss the test results, the family were given the go ahead to celebrate the incredible news.
Max will continue to go for check-ups regularly, and he has a number of appointments in the coming months to aid damage caused by his treatments. For now, however, Max and his family will continue to celebrate. Max even got a taste of the celebrity lifestyle, as he officially opened Lloyd’s Pharmacy (formerly Doc Morris) in the Longford Shopping Centre last week.
Cathy wishes to thank all who have supported the family from the very beginning - from the first fundraiser organised by Max’s godfather Eddie right up to now. “We’re so blessed that all of Longford took Max under their wing” she concludes.
