Brave Devon baby flies out to America today to begin cancer treatment

Brave baby Leo Burton is on his way to America this week to begin nearly three months of potentially life-saving treatment. The eight-month-old from Lympstone is battling an extremely rare and aggressive cancer called Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in his bladder. Leo’s best hope of a cure is a proton therapy, a specialist radiotherapy, which is not yet available in this country.
