The young 8-year-old boy Milo Carter who underwent a kidney transplant in 2018 has died.
Just watched a hospital programme featuring Milo and at the end, it said in memory of milk Carter so sad, My condolence to the family of the young boy who fought cancer battle in 2015.
On September 4, 2018, Milo Carter, 8, was reported to be doing well after he went through a lengthy transplant operation which saw his Sarah donate her kidney to her remarkable son a few days ago.
Milo is from Auchtertool and has been battling adversity throughout his young life, having undergone heart surgery at just five days old, had cancer twice and had both kidneys removed.
In 2015, Milo Carter from Fife became the new face of Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens and TK Maxx’ Give Up Clothes for Good initiative.
He is probably one of the bravest in the country and fittingly he is proof of how crucial these types of partnerships are for making new discoveries and breakthroughs to help more children survive.
At just 72 hours old, Milo had surgery to mend a hole in his heart and at three years old he was diagnosed with tumours in both kidneys, his lungs and liver.
Thankfully, a surgeon at Great Ormond Street hospital in London succeeded in saving 90% of one of his kidneys, then chemotherapy and radiotherapy at Edinburgh Sick Children’s hospital helped make Milo clear of cancer.
Now as the front of the Give Up Clothes for Good initiative he is helping raise money to fund vital research in to cures and kinder treatments for cancers affecting children, like himself, and teens and young adults
Give Up Clothes for Good raises money by asking people to drop off any unwanted clothing, accessories and quality homeware in permanent bins provided in TK Maxx stores. This is then donated to and sold at Cancer Research UK shops, with the charity keeping the cash.
The family hopes the sacrifice Sarah has made will mean Milo will have a much better quality of life.
Milo’s grandparents Robert and Marion McFarlane revealed how the ypungster’s father Kevin had also been in line and willing to donate his kidney to his son. After that fell through, Sarah stepped into the breach.
Marion said: “It’s been a very traumatic week.
“But Milo just takes everything in his stride and it’s just unbelievable what he’s been through. We call him our little Tonka truck because he just keeps going and going.
“We’re so proud of them after all that’s happened.”
Milo suffered heart failure and was rushed to hospital where he endured a nine-hour operation to repair his heart.
The anguish didn’t stop there as Milo was dealt another blow in April 2013, when he was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour.
With rare and aggressive cancer in both kidneys, scans also revealed it had spread to his lungs and liver, meaning Milo had to undergo intensive chemotherapy.
Through it all Milo has been an inspiration, remaining cheery and upbeat.
He continues to study hard at school, enjoys playing the piano, attending Beavers and Rhas inspired many fundraising events.
Following the family’s latest ordeal, Milo is now looking forward to having a Pringle party, where he will be able to enjoy the crisps he has been unable to have for so long.
Milo’s achievements were recognised at Friday night’s Kingdom FM Local Hero Awards, where Robert and Marion picked up the Child of Achievement Award on their grandson’s behalf.
