"A scan has shown us that Toby's tumour has progressed.

"We were told something that we never wanted to hear.

"Toby's consultant told us that there are no more treatment options for Toby & there is nothing else they can do.

"Toby is now home where he belongs surrounded by his whole family.

"He is very drowsy due to being on very strong pain relief, however we are going to try & make as many happy memories with him as possible, he has given us a list of things he would like to do.

"I'm not ready to give up on him yet and I'm still going to fight for my baby boy 💙"

Thousands of well-wishers have responded to the message on Facebook.
