Schoolboy flies to the USA for specialist cancer treatment

Brave schoolboy Benjamin Carter has flown out to the United States for a specialist cancer treatment not available in the UK. The 11-year-old, of Walkern Road, Benington, suffers from rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), which affects the muscle tissue in his larynx. He flew out to Jacksonville, Florida, on Monday and will undergo a cycle of proton therapy, which will irradiate diseased tissue.
