Welcome to Fight Said Fred!
Welcome to Fight Said Fred, our family blog page. The aim of this blog is to share our family experiences throughout Freddie’s journey having treatment for leukaemia, just three months after losing his mum to breast cancer.
We are following Emma (Freddie and Noah’s mum) lead in writing a blog. She did it through her treatment (see Boobs Behaving Badly blog page). Our aim is to share our thoughts, feelings, worries, anxieties and good times as we all go through this journey together. This will be a form of therapy for us as a family and we hope that we can help others going through this experience as well.
Our aim is to write a weekly blog about everything that has happened in that week. This will include everything from treatment to feelings to what we have done.
Please feel free to share our blogs far and wide and also follow us on our social media sites. We want to try and reach as many people as possible.
