WORCESTER schoolboy Oscar Saxelby-Lee is still receiving treatment which could potentially help him win his battle against leukaemia.

Oscar’s parents have said he is having a donor lymphocyte infusion which could help remove his remaining cancer cells.

Over 12,500 people follow the Hand in Hand for Oscar Facebook page which is used to post updates on how the five-year-old is doing during his long cancer battle.

In a Facebook post, the parents said Oscar has not been feeling well. This could be due to a range of things, such as his body rejecting the treatment, or Oscar's response to the new cells that’s being infused into his blood.

The post reads: “It’s been one of those sofa days, struggling to keep anything down and not wanting to do much at all. No temperatures, no rashes, just physically worn out.

“It could be a number of things. His body using all its fight in response to the new cells. Generally knackered from such a busy week. Coming down with some sort of infection. Or a rejection to the donor lymphocyte infusion and disease growth.

“It’s never easy to determine, but we are just hoping it’s down to having so many fun filled days that his little body just needs a little more TLC.

“PJ’s and Paddington are in order.”

Oscar’s new treatment means he has frozen T cells from his donor infused into his blood with the hope they will tackle the remaining cells that contain the disease.

Another post said: “We are hoping Oscar’s consultant will be able to shed some light on why Oscar hasn’t been himself for the past few days but then again it’s never easy to determine. Fingers crossed for a better few days and more smiles.”

Student bakers from Christopher Whitehead Language College took part in a Halloween Bake Off where all the funds were raised for young Oscar.

Students from the school in Bromwich Road cooked up creations to battle it out for the Bake Off crown.

Competition was fierce and 116 cakes were brought in on October 21.

Over £210 was raised from sales of the ghoulish, gooey and ghostly ganache cakes and this will be sent to support Oscar’s appeal.

The judge was Owen Lowe from Youthcomm Radio in Worcester who had the difficult task of choosing the winners.
