Felix, five, who has retinoblastoma, will be the second child in the country to have intravenous chemotherapy.

Felix’s right eye was removed in September last year.

His mum, Louise, 43, of Inworth Road, Feering, said: “He started school in September and he had been at school for two weeks when we were given the blow the cancer had come back aggressively in his right eye.
