Alexander Appeal: Three-year-old back home following proton beam therapy

The parents of Alexander Vinson face an anxious two-month wait to find out whether proton beam therapy treatment on his brain tumour has worked as they settle back into family life at home. This week, Alexander’s mum Raluca, 35, and dad Philip thanked the thousands of people who donated more than £150,000 towards the trip after he was turned down by the NHS. “We won’t know how the treatment worked or if anything else has changed until we have another MRI scan and we have to wait two or three months. Apparently too much radiation can cause part of the brain to swell up,” she said.
