Your say: Well wishes for boy's return from brain tumour


Well wishes have poured in on Facebook for a six-year-old boy who has returned to school after treatment for his brain tumour over the summer holidays.

Treatment finished early in August, so Bobby Humphries could go back school in Sheldon, Birmingham.

On the BBC Midlands Facebook page, Carol Ann Silva posted: "He is such a gorgeous little boy with the most beautiful smile."

While Chris Cartwright added: "Cancer treatment is so hard for an adult let alone a young lad. Well done young man, I hope you stay well for a very long time but most of all in the short term enjoy school and have fun."

Bren King wrote: "Wow, awesome. Great to hear something good and what a fab picture."

'No sign of brain cancer' for army medic Cameron

A man who was filmed by the BBC having brain surgery on a tumour while awake says he's been told the cancer is no longer visible.

Surgeons: At the Edge of Life, documented Cameron Ray's operation at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

The 21-year-old had just finished training as an army medic when a tumour the size of a ping pong ball was discovered in his head.

He's now had follow-up scans which he says showed no sign of the cancer, and doctors told him if they saw the same results in three months' time, they'd put him into remission.

I was quite shocked and surprised that they said they can't see the tumour at all, there are no cancerous cells where the tumour was and, if it continues like this, they're happy to put me into remission which is something we never thought we'd ever hear."
