Right now the bear’s positive effects on little Toby’s state of mind are more important than ever.
He has so far completed eight rounds of chemotherapy overall - three first line, four second line. Doctors recently began Toby’s strongest protocol yet, of which he has 3 out of 4 cycles left. Each line of treatment has been progressively more intensive and, unfortunately, so have the side effects.
He is not out of the woods, but is currently facing a potentially better outcome. The tumour has reduced in size by around 50 per cent.
“We know we just have to take it cycle by cycle,” Jenaya says.
