Exmouth cancer boy has faith in his mum
Raymond O’Sullivan, 11, from Exmouth, needs thousands of pounds to pay for life-saving treatment to beat cancer. The Journal has launched a campaign to help him raise the cash.
With all the innocence of youth, the brave youngster this week told the Journal he believed his mum would succeed in her eight-week quest.

Raymond said: “I think I should get it anyway. I know she’ll do it, either way.”
Vanessa said her only goal in life was to raise the cash her son needs for the fighting chance of a normal future.
