My good train buddy and his wife are devastated. Their lovely 12 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with leukeimia. I cant even imagine what they are going through. I spoke briefly with Chris yesterday and he is in bits, i think Shona is holding up only slightly better. Maya is determined to "kick cancers butt" but she doesnt understand the long road ahead. She had a Hickman line put in yesterday but has to have a lumber puncture in the spinal column on monday before they start chemo. After that its 8 days of chemo followed by 6-8 weeks intensive treatment at Addenbrooks hospital then 18 months of further treatment. Maya is such a lovely girl. On our Vegas part of our trip last year we met up with them, Maya came to the airport with a welcome sign for us. All of us in the train gang are devastated and are already planning on doing some events. This really is a crappy disease, it hits you hard at any time but it hits you harder whrn its someone so young.
