Oliver (aka Ollie), aged 13, is fighting a type of cancer called Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Ollie was diagnosed after he had a biopsy on a lump that didn’t go away. The news was shocking as he was fit, active and had hardly any symptoms.
Hodgkin's Lymphoma is an aggressive form of cancer that weakens the immune system. Ollie has had to take steroids and undergo chemotherapy to fight the condition.
During Ollie’s treatment, his turtle Dylan kept him company, helping him through some challenging times. This was especially true at night, when, due to his treatment, Ollie would often be awake and Dylan would keep him distracted and amused. Ollie loves to care for and feed his turtle so that’s why his wish is to meet big sea turtles.
Ollie’s mum, Anna, told us that Dylan gave him a purpose when times were difficult. To read more about Oliver's story from Anna's perspective click here.
