“Utter hell” of son’s diagnosis inspires mum’s challenge

1 min read

A mum is taking part in our 10,000 Steps a Day in February Challenge inspired by her little boy’s brain tumour journey.

Keiley Ebbs has stepped up to help find a cure after her son Jett was diagnosed with the disease in December 2020.

Jett was just three years old when he was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma. He has undergone 11 operations, as well as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Happily, later this month, Jett will ring the bell at hospital to mark the fact that his last two MRI scans have been clear. 

Keiley said: “It’s been two years of utter hell and we are finally getting some closure to allow us to look forward and be a normal family. Jett has been through so much but he’s so strong and he’s always had a smile on his little face.

“I’m really looking forward to this challenge to raise much-needed money to fight this devastating disease. Get involved and sign up!”
