Nathaniel's Story

"I feel like I’ve grown a lot. It might sound weird, but after those four days sailing, I feel at peace."

Diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2004 when he was six, Nathaniel is still discovering long-term impacts of recovery. “When I was 14 I fractured my knee and didn’t know, but it was down to vitamin D deficiency. On this trip, I found out steroids can make your bones brittle. It’s not like I’m all cured.”
