CANCER battler Sam Shaw is ‘back home and doing well’ after suffering a temperature spike last week.

The five-year-old neuroblastoma sufferer was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital last week when his temperature rose and had to have blood tests.

But now he is feeling better and has returned to the family’s home in Glencoe Avenue, Hoddlesden.

Sam and his mum Christine recently returned from the US where a £250,000 fundraising appeal funded potentially life-saving immunotherapy treatment.

Christine said: “Sam is now back home doing well after his high temperatures.

“He has been feeling much more tired over the last couple of days, the high temperatures and medication has finally taken its toll and he has been sleeping lots.

“It has been yet another roller-coaster for our family as we had been enjoying a bit of relative ‘normality’ since arriving back from Philadelphia.

“This has been a reminder to us that we can only live day by day and make the most of every moment.”
