A two-year-old from Sutton has successfully recovered from coronavirus whilst battling Leukaemia. 

Jackson Hall, from Carshalton, was tested positive for coronavirus last month (May 13) after being rushed to hospital with a temperature.

The two-year-old who has been battling Leukaemia since February 4, this year, has had to fight off several infections including, Rhinovirus and a fungal lung infection.

Jackson spent most of March in hospital before being tested for coronavirus.

After being tested positive for the virus, Jackson's parents assumed the worst due to him being classed as clinically vulnerable.

However, after showing no other symptoms but a high temperature, Jackson came back on top and finally tested negative on May 5 and again on May 8.

Now, the brave young boy can finally continue his chemotherapy treatment which was put to a halt after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Speaking to Sutton Guardian about her little miracle, Jackson's mother, Samantha Hall said: "It’s been very hard the last 3 months.

"We have watched our happy little boy turn into a completely different version of himself.

"He put on lots of weight because of the steroids, his hair started falling out and then the chemotherapy caused him to stop walking.

"When he was diagnosed with coronavirus, we were devastated.

"The one thing that we were trying to protect him from he caught, I felt like a failure.

"The virus made Jackson’s leukaemia diagnosis a lot harder to deal with as a family- often causing us to spend a large amount of time apart.

"The treatment can be rough on Jackson and it’s heart-breaking to see him go through it, but we take the good with the bad and get through it together.

"Jackson has always been a happy, laid-back child and it’s amazing to see him take it all in his stride, we couldn’t be prouder of him.

"Hopefully, when this is all over, we can take Jackson and his sister to Disneyland."

Jackson's chemotherapy treatment is set to end on April 23, 2023.

His parents have created an Instagram account to document his journey.
