Celebrity Chef Jean Christophe Novelli has praised Addenbrooke's Hospital for saving his baby son's life after he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare cancer.
Valentino was six weeks old when his mum Michelle found a lump on his
neck during feeding.
An MRI scan revealed he had stage-four neuroblastoma, a rare cancer of nerve cells, which had spread around his body. It usually affects under-fives.
The youngster was referred to Addenbrooke’s straight away where he underwent two years of intense treatment, including chemotherapy.
He is now cancer free.
