Belgium brain cancer vaccine may save Nottinghamshire boy


A 15-year-old boy from Nottinghamshire is travelling to Belgium for an experimental cancer treatment which it is hoped will save his life.

Sam White's family were devastated when they found his brain cancer had returned more than two years after a large tumour was removed.

Mother Pam White hopes a vaccine made in a laboratory in Belgium from Sam's blood cells will stimulate his immune system to attack the remaining cancer cells.
