A 5 year old boy from Walsall is one of the faces of Stand Up To Cancer

Gerard Mongan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia two years ago.

The 5 year old is now a part of Stand Up To Cancer which is taking place on Friday.

He and his family want to help others which is why they agreed to be part of it.

His mum Carolyn says, “At the beginning it was very harsh for him, he wasn’t walking for about 4 months.

“We’ve just found out now that his bones are weak, so we’ve got to see a doctor about that as well.”
