Brave five-year-old boy who overcame Covid and rare cancer spends first day at school with twin brother

A BOY of five who overcame Covid while being treated for a rare cancer spends his first day at school with his twin brother.

Archie Wilks, fighting neuroblastoma, beat the virus in a month last year.

Parents Simon and Harriet say Archie is still getting cancer treatment but is now strong enough to join Henry in reception.

Mr Wilks, of Saffron Walden, Essex, said: “It was quite overwhelming seeing them both go to school together.”

“We were both quite emotional seeing Archie in his school uniform and watching them play all evening in their uniform together.
“We definitely really cherish the simple things after going through this with Archie.”

He said Archie has “really built up his strength” and is “relishing being able to play with his friends”.

Funds are being raised on JustGiving for Archie to take part in a US trial which may help stop cancer returning after remission.
