Writing on the Oscar Knox appeal blog his mother Leona said they felt “lost” but that they would continue to search for a treatment.
“We are back to the drawing board, and very much looking forward to fully assessing our new position with Oscar’s fantastic and very supportive consultant back home,” she said.

“As always, in the rare times that we feel deflated, we look to Oscar for courage to keep fighting.”
Oscar won the hearts of people across the world after his family set up a twitte account to update people.
