Making memories: Trip to Disneyland Paris for Leo the Lion

Making memories: Trip to Disneyland Paris for Leo the Lion EWN Media Group

INSPIRATIONAL cancer fighter Leo Bermejo from Almeria is heading to France with his family for a magical, memory-making five-night trip to the Disney theme park.

A fund launched late last year - and taken up by the Euro Weekly News with subsequent widespread publicity reaching hundreds of thousands of people - raised enough money to send him to the United States for cutting edge proton-beam therapy in Oklahoma.

But a recent MRI scan has confirmed the cancer has returned and is growing quickly in different areas of the original cavity.

Speaking about the trip Mum Karen said, “I don’t feel one bit excited. I am sure we will all have fun but deep inside our hearts we will know that it is the beginning of the end for Leo.

“Now we are being forced to think about life without him which seems impossible at the moment. His smile brightens our day every day, his happiness and positivity makes us all better people.”

She went on to say, “I am sure emotions will be all over the place. I will watch other families with their healthy children feeling envious. Why can’t that be us? Why is it my baby boy that has to go through this.

“He has fought so hard but he has never stopped smiling and he has never shown that he is ready to give up.”

The family will travel to Manchester first so that Leo can say ‘hello’ to his friends there. Then they will all travel to the Disney resort for five nights.

On their return to Spain the family will start arranging palliative care for brave Leo.
