Lincoln’s favourite colours are blue and red. His interests include anything dinosaur (red T-Rex’s are his all time favourite,), superhero’s (Spider-Man is definitely a crowd pleaser!) and transport (mainly construction, trucks, planes and trains).


Biography

Lincoln has always been a happy, full of life social butterfly who’s cheekiness and spunk just lights up any room he enters. The past 12 months have had some of its biggest changes and challenges before his diagnosis and he’s just taken everything in his stride; and his leukaemia diagnosis and treatments have been handled the same way, nothing has phased him and he just gets on with what needs to be done. He is the bravest and toughest kid we know!

At the start of 2021, we sold our family home in NSW and moved in with family for 9-10 months, then relocated to regional QLD in November 2021. At the start of February 2022 Lincoln’s baby sister arrived a few weeks early and in March we moved into our new family home. Only days after Lincoln’s 5th birthday in August he started experiencing unexplainable fevers between 39-40.6 that were not coming down with any efforts. Then the nose bleeds started and the fatigue, weakness and excessive random bruising followed. We knew something wasn’t right so took him to the local hospital for testing but never expected the blood test to come back with the results they did. Since the blood tests came back the following morning, we were on a flight with the Royal Flying Doctors 3 hours later and in QLD Childrens hospital a short while after. Since then we’ve undergone an aggressive first round of chemotherapy where his leukaemia was confirmed in his CSF and spiking blast cell count that had drs retesting tests and are due to start our second round of high risk intensive treatment at the start of October. Lincoln has a long road ahead but he’s certainly not letting cancer rule his life or decide his future. He’s our superhero and he’s giving it his all.
