Ben Magee (4) – will join Beefy on Thursday 12 April in Glasgow.
Ben was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia earlier this year after his local GP noticed he was very anaemic and sent him to Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill.
Unfortunately he was unable to make it to London for the launch, but he is responding well to treatment and looking forward to joining Sir Ian when the walk starts in Glasgow on Thursday 12 April 2012.
Mum Fiona says: “Yorkhill have been amazing and Ben is doing well so at the moment we’re focusing on that. The steroids give him enormous mood swings and he doesn't understand why.
It’s really hard, but there are lots of children who are not doing well so if the mood swings are the worst of it then I’m happy.”
