LEO: A testing time

FOUR-YEAR-OLD Leo Bermejo’s brain tumour operation at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital on Merseyside has been postponed while the family nervously await the results of MRI and lumbar puncture tests.

Leo the Lion has flown from Spain to the UK for the next round of treatment on his brain tumour.

Within two weeks of his operation it is planned that he will have follow-up proton beam therapy at a hospital in Oklahoma in the United States.

This week the Euro Weekly News will be publishing a special double-page spread in all six editions covering mainland Spain and Mallorca  to highlight Leo’s fight and the support he has received.
