Gaspard was diagnosed at age 3, with stage 3 prostate rhabdomyosarcoma with a large 10x11cm tumour, involving bladder and lymph nodes. The tumor was so large that it was blocking most of his vital organs. Before the diagnosis, Gaspard experienced severe constipation, tummy pain and leg pains. Gaspard was rushed to Great Ormond Street Hospital in December 2018 as he could not urinate and his parents were given the diagnosis after tests and scans. He had to have 2 nefrostomies placed to drain his kidneys, a catheter to drain his bladder and a stoma bag to drain his bowel. Gaspard’s treatment involved 9 cycles of Ifosofamide, Vincristine, Actinomycin (IVA) chemotherapy and 28 days of Proton Therapy in USA. Currently he is doing 6-12 months maintenance chemotherapy treatment. His response has been positive and the tumour has shrunk from 10cm to less than 2cm. Gaspard is French and is part of a family of 5, with two sisters. His parents Benjamin and Caroline have lived in London for over 15 years and work in investment banking and financial services. They have set up a foundation called Hope With Gaspard to raise funds for Alice’s Arc and to promote awareness of Gaspard’s journey and childhood cancer.
