Kayden Royle, who’s Dad serves in the Royal Air Force, was named ‘Little Trooper of the Month’ for his bravery and determination after being diagnosed with alopecia and undergoing treatment at the same time as moving home and coping with his Dad serving overseas.
At the beginning of 2020, Kayden was living in Cyprus when he suddenly lost 75% of his hair due to the onset of alopecia.
Kayden started receiving treatment in February and whilst his hair hasn’t grown back yet, his family say he is slowly getting his confidence back and is enjoying being back at school.
Kayden and his family are now facing another challenge with his Dad now deployed overseas until July, but Kayden’s Mum says that he is taking this in his stride and is just focused on getting back to his football when games resume in April.
She explains: “I am so proud of Kayden and how he has dealt with all the changes he has faced this past year; alopecia, moving back to the UK, home schooling, lockdown and now deployment. There’s been tears and smiles but I can see my happy boy returning now and his confidence is growing more and more every day.”
Kayden will receive a special medal, certificate and prize as part of his award
