Chemo Duck rings the end of treatment bell

“I just wanted to say how grateful we are as family for the Chemo Ducks and the impact it has on children’s lives fighting cancer.
Our 10 year old son completed his 3 and a half years of treatment this month, and the Chemo Duck is officially part of the family since we received him. We like to call him ‘Peggy’, (our son was very, very scared of Peg – a chemo injection, and every time he would receive Peg he used to give a tight hug to Peggy hence the name). Peggy has been to every single appointment, blood transfusion, outings and road trips. Our son rang his end of treatment bell earlier this month and was very adamant about Peggy ringing the bell too and cutting his own cake, which he did!” – Fatima, mum
