Everton Stevens legends open battle for young son’s cancer
Everton legend Gary Stevens, who won two League championships, an FA Cup and a European Cup Winners’ Cup with the Blues, opened his son’s battle against juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) , a rare form of blood cancer that affects young children. .
The 57-year-old man, who now lives with his wife Louise and their three boys in Perth, Australia, where he works as a physiotherapist, told ECHO:
“We are doing well with little Jack. COVID struck about six months ago and I think it was almost a bit of a workout because now we have to put things in place because Jack is highly immunocompromised.
“He has been diagnosed for about six weeks now. Two weeks ago, he had his tonsils removed. It has not been going well for a while and we are committed to it.
“Various things that were related to tonsil problems like his sleep problems because he had problems sleeping at night with a blocked throat.
“All the signs that he had a more serious problem were all explained by that.
“Then he took them out and a few days later he looked pretty rough and he just looked worse and worse. He looked ghostly and tired.
“And my wife just said no, I’m not happy with him, I’m going to take him to the local hospital with a pediatric unit.” “
