New baby for Kai’s fam­ily

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

THE PAR­ENTS of Ave­ley boy Kai Nell, who stole the hearts of many around WA dur­ing a two-year bat­tle with a rare form of leukaemia, have shared the news that they are ex­pect­ing an­other child.

Richard and Kara Nell announced on their Face­book page Team Kai - Beat­ing Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), which they cre­ated to raise aware­ness and sup­port for their three-year-old son’s bat­tle and help search for bone mar­row donors, that they are ex­pect­ing a baby in De­cem­ber.

The cou­ple said they were shocked by the news, but were very happy.

Mr Nell said it was a very good sur­prise and he be­lieved Kai would have been so happy to have an­other brother or sis­ter.

“Kai would have been over the moon. He loved his lit­tle brother Brae, so we know he would have loved this baby as well,” he said.

“We were a lit­tle con­cerned about an­nounc­ing the news, we didn’t want peo­ple to think we were try­ing to re­place Kai, be­cause he could never be re­placed.

“I be­lieve Kara was put on this earth to be a mother and she is a fan­tas­tic mother.”

Kai lost his bat­tle with the dis­ease in Jan­uary.
