Ian was just three years old when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia after collapsing at playgroup. Thankfully Ian responded well to treatment at The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and is currently undergoing maintenance chemotherapy which he is due to finish soon.
Proud Mum Claire says: “Ian’s a right little character: the treatment has been difficult and stressful at times but he’s been amazing – so strong. He loved the M&S shoot, and he was very happy that he was able to take his Star Wars pyjamas home as he is always playing that on his Nintendo DS. The only bit he wasn’t too sure of was the hair and make-up!”
