There wasn’t a dry eye in the police station when news came through that a three-year-old boy had been given all clear from cancer.

Officers at March police station had taken young Max to their hearts.

In January, they invited him to visit the station to lift his spirits after he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer two months earlier.

“Max was diagnosed with kidney cancer in November last year after lots of misdiagnosis – he had a large 9cm tumour on his kidneys and in December he had the tumour removed, a big seven-hour operation,” said a post to the Policing Fenland Facebook group.

Max in hospital – he was diagnosed with kidney cancer but has now been given the all clear.

“Devastatingly his parents were given the news after the operation that the cancer had spread to Max’s lymph nodes and was stage three which meant he would then require radiotherapy as well.

“As a lover of all things emergency services, and to help brighten what was an incredibly tough time for such a little man, we had Max over to the station to give him a tour and be an honorary member of the team for the day.”

But the officers from March kept Max close to their heart.

“We kept in touch with Max and his family throughout his journey and was recently told the wonderful news that he had come to the end of his treatment and been given the all-clear.”

Officers from March were delighted “and to mark this moment, Max rang the ‘end of treatment’ bell at Addenbrooke’s Hospital last week, and we were there to surprise him”.

They added: “We hope you’ve got the brightest future ahead of you Max, you’re an inspiration to us, as we are to you, and you never know, you might be one of us for real one day.”

The post has attracted well over 1,000 ‘likes’ on the Policing Fenland page.

Typical was the resident who wrote: “Absolute legends. This is proper policing, and you should be so proud.”

Even Max’s nanny popped by Facebook to offer her thanks.

“Thanks lads it was lovely meeting you both on that special day,” she wrote.

“It meant a lot to Max who is now a strong healthy super hero.”
