Delaney gave his followers some circumstantial information about his son’s well-being battle, writing: “Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss.” The toddler then underwent operation to eliminate the tumor and began further cure in the beginning of 2017.

“The cancer returned last autumn and he died in January,” Delaney exposed.

“Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals,” he wrote. “His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.”

Delaney shared that he, his wife, Leah, and his two other sons are “devastated” after losing Henry, but said he’d be concentrating on them to deal with his grief. “I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry’s mom and his brothers,” he wrote. “They are why I will endeavor to not go mad with grief. I don’t want to miss out on their beautiful lives. I’m greedy for more experiences with them.”

“The NHS nurses and doctors and the home carers and charity workers who helped our family survive Henry’s illness will be my heroes until the day I die,” he wrote. “I am desperately sad right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in this world.”

“Please make a donation,” he asked. “In Henry’s name or in the name of someone you love. Our family would be in much worse shape right now if it weren’t for them. I would also urge you to take concrete and sustained action to support the NHS, however you can. Do not take it for granted.”
