TINY Raymond Carr, who has been battling a rare form of cancer for ten months, is in remission.

His parents Bonnie Upham and her partner Richard Carr, both in their late 30s, are now back home with their son at Plain Pond, Wiveliscombe, after being with Ray for much of his treatment in Bristol.

A delighted Bonnie said yesterday: “Ray has rung the bell in Musgrove and in Bristol. He is now in remission

“It has been a hard time for us all as a family. We would like to thank everyone for their support and kindness.

“We may be in remission but we still have a long way to go with weekly community nurses, and monthly hospital appointments. The next five years will be hard as it won’t be until then we can be told he is completely cancer free.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Ray’s grandparents Steve and Gail Carr for all their support in looking after Ray’s twin brother and sister and Teagan and Aliyah’s family for supporting them these last ten months.

“We could not have done it without them all.”

“We would like to thank Musgrove Park Hospital for all their help and kindness during our time there.
