a baby who survived a brain tumour the size of two oranges returns home in time for first birthday

A baby who survived a giant brain tumour returned home from hospital to celebrate his first birthday surrounded by hundreds of birthday cards from around the world.

Brave Roux Owen was discharged from hospital on his birthday after undergoing 10 operations in just 11 months to remove a tumour ‘the size of two oranges’.

His parents Antony and Amy, 32, from Hull, East Yorkshire, had expected him to spend the day in hospital so asked well-wishers to post birthday cards to the ward.

But on his birthday, they were told by doctors that he was being discharged and he could return home to spend the day with his parents and older brother Noah, three.

A global army of well-wishers sent cards to the ward where Roux had spent almost half of his life since being diagnosed with an immature teratoma, a benign tumour that continues to grow. 

‘We were overwhelmed with the number of cards we received,’ said father Antony, an English teacher.

‘We’ve had hundreds from all around the world, as far away as Nigeria. He has touched so many people.

‘It seems strange but the love and support we have had from people means we’ve never felt alone during all this.’

Roux was diagnosed with a brain tumour in November last year when he was just four-weeks-old after his parents became concerned that he was not feeding properly.

Doctors at Hull Royal Infirmary blue-lighted the tot to Leeds General Infirmary – more than 50 miles away from the family’s home – for specialist treatment.

After eight major operations, the tumour was finally removed last month and he was beginning to recover back home.

What is a immature teratoma?

An immature teratoma is a type of germ cell tumour which is often made of several different types of tissue, including hair, muscle and bone . 

They have cells that look different to normal cells under a microscope and are typically malignant. 

In some cases immature teratomas can spread to other parts of the body. 

The benign tumours make enzymes or hormones that may cause signs and symptoms of disease. 

In newborns, immature teratomas are usually located in the sacram – a triangular bone at the base of the spine or the tailbone.

It can also occur in the ovaries as girls start puberty.

But Roux was rushed back to hospital last week after a shunt inserted in his head to remove excess fluid to reduce brain swelling became infected and blocked.

He needed another two operations to repair the shunt and drain fluid from his brain. 

‘The tumour was 10cm long and it grew cysts,’ explained Antony. ‘A surgeon said to me it is the sort of thing they would see one in a career, if it all.’

Mother Amy, a primary school teacher, had been keeping an online diary of the family’s journey and Roux had amassed a legion of adoring well-wishers.

When it was feared that Roux would spend his first birthday in hospital, Antony reached out to their followers and asked for birthday cards to make his day special.

They received the best birthday present when doctors told the family that Roux was healthy enough to go home.

The tumour has left Roux without sight in his left eye and doctors believe he is a few months behind in his development.

But his happy personality has inspired his parents to hope that he will catch up with his development.

Antony said: ‘The doctors said that his development is a bit behind and his motor skills and his core strength aren’t what they should be.

‘They said they can’t say for sure if there is anything he won’t be able to do, until it comes to that point in his development.

‘He is such a happy, settled boy and he is doing things and hitting his milestones, just a bit later than he normally would have. But he has spent around six months in a hospital bed, so that is probably why.’

The well-wishers sent him hundreds of first birthday cards with sweet messages inside after following his journey for the first year of his life 

And they are now hoping to make up for lost time and enjoy family life together with Roux and Noah, who have barely seen each other over the past year.

Antony added: ‘The last year has just been as hard for Noah, I can’t imagine what it has felt like for him.

‘Noah and Roux have got a close bond, but they should have spent the last doing all the things that brothers should do.

‘We’re really looking forward to seeing them together, that’s the thing we’re looking forward to the most.

‘We can’t wait to do all the normal, boring family things together that we haven’t been able to do for the last year.’

The family have raised more than £30,000 for Leeds Cares, a charity that supports Ward 52, where Roux was treated during his stays in hospital.

‘I cannot express how amazing the staff at Leeds General are,’ explained Amy. ‘The surgeons, nurses, doctors, play leaders, house keepers and every single other person that has had a part to play in Roux’s journey.

‘The ward which primarily cared for Roux, L52, is a special place, ran by a team of very special people.

‘Day in, day out they worked flat out to ensure Roux received the best possible care. Words will never be enough to express how much L52 means to our family.

‘They’ve provided us with a future for our little boy that at one point we didn’t think we would have. It will always hold a very precious place in our hearts.

‘Maybe Roux was always destined to begin his first birthday surrounded by the people who made that possible.’

princess beatrice wedding unseen photo on fergies thank you note

Proud mother the Duchess of York has treated royal fans to an exclusive glimpse at her daughter Princess Beatrice’s wedding day. 

An unseen black and white image of the bride and her new husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi features on a thank you note sent by Fergie and has been shared to  Instagram by royal fan Sarah Janes.

The note and exclusive picture she received was sent by the Duchess of York  as a thank you for her well wishes on her daughter’s July wedding day. 

Princess Beatrice, 32, tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor on 17 July 2020 in a small ceremony attended by her immediate family and the Queen, 94,  and Duke of Edinburgh, 99.  

In the picture, the beaming couple are seen holding hands on the grounds of Royal Lodge, with the happy couple sharing smiles as they stroll along.

The note penned by the Duchess of York read: ‘Thank you so much for your amazingly caring and supporting messages for Beatrice and Edo’s future happiness. 

‘It was a glorious day; the sun smiled down on them. We were all delighted to be able to come together and celebrate their love for one another. 

‘Beatrice looked stunning and Edo handsome – their love shone through.

‘We are so happy to welcome Edo into our family and thank him for his love and devotion to Beatrice.

‘Thank you for many years of kindness and loyalty.’   

The Queen’s granddaughter, 32, was due to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, at St James’s Palace on 29 May but plans were postponed due to Covid-19 – and they instead tied the knot in a surprise secret ceremony at Windsor Castle on 17 July with just twenty guests.

The royal has now spoken out about the wedding for the first time as she appeared in a video for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and announced the winners of the organisation’s Kids Summer Art Competition 2020.

The video appears to have been filmed at the same time as the royal’s wedding dress was unveiled at Windsor Castle last week.

The Sir Norman Hartnell gown, first worn by the Queen in the 1960s, was loaned to Beatrice by her grandmother for her low-key wedding to Edo.

Her wedding gown will be on display from September 24 until November 22, the Royal Collection Trust announced earlier this month.

Princess Beatrice and Edo enjoyed a slimmed-down wedding at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on July 17.

The ceremony details were not made public beforehand and the pair were originally due to marry in the Chapel Royal followed by a reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace – but their wedding was postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Beatrice’s father the Duke of York walked her down the aisle but he did not feature in the photographs released by Buckingham Palace. The wedding was also attended by The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princess Beatrice’s latest comments come as the York family celebrate the news that Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie is expecting her first baby.

The royal, who married husband Jack Brooksbank in October 2018, are expecting the baby in early 2021.

Sharing the news on Instagram last week, Eugenie, 30, wrote: ‘Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….,’ alongside photos of baby slippers and her and Jack smiling.

Her mother Sarah Ferguson shared her excitement, writing: ‘I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child.

‘Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother. Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.’

On her Storytime with Fergie and Friends channel, she read out – appropriately enough – a tale of magic called Nanna Maureen, by Casey Gillespie.

The baby will be the first grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and will be the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s ninth great-grandchild.

princess mary of denmark unveils christmas stamp collection

Crown Princess Mary turned heads in a chic pantsuit when she appeared at two separate functions this weekend. 

Denmark’s future queen, 48, unveiled a new postage stamp for the Christmas Seal Foundation to help raise money for children who have been bullied and suffer from mental health issues.

Mary was welcomed by a small group of children, with the annual event downsized to accommodate COVID-19 regulations.

The mother-of-four looked radiant in a new slouchy plum pantsuit, paired with a Cartier bracelet, Hugo Boss clutch and a face mask.

The Princess, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, beamed as she took off her face mask to address the small crowd and unveil the stamp

The designer of the suit, which she wore loosely with a thin waist belt, is yet to be identified.

Living up to her reputation for recycling designer pieces, the Australian icon paired the look with heels from one of her favourite Italian designers, Gianvito Rossi. 

The Princess, who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, beamed as she took off her COVID-19 face mask to address the small crowd and unveil the stamp. 

She explained this year’s stamp was inspired by the 100th anniversary of the  reunification of Denmark and Southern Jutland.

The Crown Princess is a patron of the Christmas Stamp Foundation, which aims to help about 1,000 children aged between seven and 14 every year as part of Danish yuletide festivities.

Later in the afternoon, Mary arrived in Copenhagen to present an award to companies known for their sustainability and approach to climate and corporate social responsibility.

The Princess has presented the award for the last seven years. 

She arrived at the event in the same outfit as earlier in the day, slipping into a grey coat while she made the trip. 

The purple two piece ensemble is yet to be claimed by a designer, and was paired with white and yellow diamonds and multiple bracelets. 

Two of the bracelets are from her collection and have been staple features in her wardrobe, from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

A third bracelet has been identified as Cartier.   

Since her wedding to Prince Frederik, 52, on May 14, 2004 at Copenhagen Cathedral, Mary has mastered diplomacy and regal decorum with unparalleled skill.

A true People’s Princess, she has worked tirelessly to to prove her commitment to charity, becoming a patron of more than 25 international organisations – all while raising her four children and appearing at a constant rotation of diplomatic events.

Together with Frederik, Mary shares Prince Christian, 15, Princess Isabella, 13, and nine-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

Mary’s patronages include the World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe and the United Nations Population Fund, where she supports their work to promote maternal health in more than 150 developing nations. 

In 2007, the Princess launched The Mary Foundation, a charity focused on stamping out domestic violence, bullying and loneliness.

Each year The Mary Foundation hands out 2,000 rucksacks for children living in temporary shelters with their mothers across Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

In November 2014, the Princess accepted the prestigious Bambi Charity Award in Berlin, which recognised her work against domestic violence.

A woman of many talents, Mary looks equally at home promoting Denmark on the world stage, visiting hospitals in Ethiopia, playing soccer in the rain with schoolchildren and participating in muddy military exercises.

In March 2019, the Princess was appointed Captain of the Danish Home Guard under the proud gaze of her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe.

Grinning from ear-to-ear at 30,000ft or reclining on a jet engine, Melissa Nosti savoured a life many young women could only dream of.

Travelling the world as a Tiger Air hostess she shared her jet-setting lifestyle in glamourous Instagram snaps from the cabin to a sunkissed beach.

But the now-33-year-old was worlds apart from these carefree days as she trundled into her local Sydney police station as a convicted sex offender.

Nosti crashed to Earth when she was arrested for having sex with a 15-year-old boy in 2010 at school she worked at when she was just 23.

Onlookers said Nosti appeared 'rather distraught' when she made her way to the car after the meeting

Two weeks ago she was sentenced to 18 months’ jail with a six month non-parole period after pleading guilty to her illicit relationship with the teen.

She served eight days in jail before she was let out on parole last week, and reported to police for the first time on Tuesday.

Dressed down in black tracksuit pants and an off-white Nike T-shirt, Nosti, from North Ryde in Sydney, was visibly distressed as she arrived at Eastwood Police Station. 

Nosti paired the a loose-fit off-white crew neck with a denim jacket.

She threw her hair into a loose, low bun at the nape of her neck and appeared distracted by her mobile phone as she made her way into the police station on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old looked comfortable in sneakers and outlandish Homer Simpson socks for the appointment.

The casual get-up was a far cry from pictures Nosti has previously shared, showing her dolled up in her uniform as a flight attendant or posing in bikinis on the beach. 

Onlookers said she appeared ‘rather distraught’ when she made her way to the car after the meeting. 

She spent about an hour inside the police station along with an older man who was equally as casually dressed in a black t-shirt and baseball cap.  

Upon leaving, she was visibly consoled by the man, who wrapped his arm around her while Nosti wiped tears from her eyes. 

She appeared at Burwood Local Court via video link from Silverwater Women’s Prison on Wednesday October 21 after her lawyer lodged a bail appeal.

Her lawyer told the court that Nosti was at ‘low risk’ of reoffending according to a doctor’s report and was successful in gaining employment.  

‘She has had an employment history after this. She was in the airline industry,’ the lawyer said, Daily Telegraph reported.

Magistrate Susan Horan said a victim impact statement from Nosti’s victim was ‘compelling’ before granting her bail.

Nosti must only own one mobile phone as part of her bail conditions, and must hand the password to police when asked.

She is also not able to contact the victim, nor any other person under the age of 16, and must stay at her North Ryde home.
