Schoolboy starts specialist cancer treatment in the USA

Brave schoolboy Benjamin Carter started a specialist cancer treatment in the United States that is not yet 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, February 15 to undergo a cycle of proton therapy, which will irradiate diseased tissue.
