A while ago, the MPS Society put me in touch with another Hunters mum and we’ve talked on the phone a couple of times. Today, we met her and her lovely son for the first time. It is difficult to describe what this meant to us.
He is a young man now, spending time at college and learning to be independent (travelling there on the train by himself), keeping in touch with his friends and enjoying hobbies such as watching sport. To see him and believe that there are still possibilities for Pudding, is wonderful and uplifting and fills me with hope.
When I first starting reading about MPS, of course I focused on the worst possible outcomes, looked at the statistics, started calculating the odds. And it’s true, the numbers aren’t great. But today, in front of me, I saw a real-live example of life after diagnosis. And I loved it.
