Santa surprises young patient at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

ELLIOT Saxon got an early present when Santa came to visit him at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust. The 3 year old, from Gateacre in Liverpool, was resting after radiotherapy treatment when Father Christmas took time out of his busy schedule to drop by. The pair enjoyed a chat and had a high 5 before Santa left to get back to the North Pole in time for the big day. When he asked Elliot what he wanted for Christmas he replied:- "An octopus." Santa joked:- "Not a real 1 I hope?"

Elliot is currently undergoing radiotherapy treatment at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre for a rare tumour in his neck called an Epithelioid sarcoma. His mum Hope Rushton said the visit had been a real boost for her son, who needs 20 sessions of radiotherapy in total. Hope said:- "Everyone has been so friendly and helpful and Santa's visit has been lovely. Elliot needs to go back to Alder Hey Hospital for two days and then we are hoping he will get home for Christmas Day." Dad Alan added:- "The staff here have been brilliant and made it so much easier for Elliot. He has fun here."
