Enjoying life: Shay Knox ringing the bell after his cancer treatment

A Co Down family whose son was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at just seven weeks old have urged people to support the charity which helped them through their most difficult days.

Shay Knox was born on February 4, 2017, weighing 9lbs 12oz, leaving his mum Susanne (30) and dad Mark (27), from Kilcoo, delighted.

However, the onset of illness just a few days later and the arrival of a rash left the couple wondering what was happening to their newborn.
