A seven-year-old boy whose mother failed in a legal bid to stop him having radiotherapy for a brain tumour, is due to begin his chemotherapy treatment in early April, two days after his birthday.
Neon Roberts is said to be making "good progress" following a course of radiotherapy.
A statement released on his behalf by his lawyer said:
[Neon] is currently having a short break from treatment but will start his chemotherapy in early April, after his birthday, as planned.
Mr Roberts and his treating doctors are very pleased with how well Neon has reacted to the treatment and are cautiously optimistic about his long-term prognosis.
Of course it has not been easy for him but the doctors are clear that the reaction Neon is showing to the treatment is well within their expectations and it is likely that any side effect will be temporary.
