Mitchell's fight continues as he relapses for fourth time

AFTER returning home from Brisbane for three days, the Luders family has headed back south as 12-year-old Mitchell Luders' cancer relapsed for the fourth time.

On Tuesday, May 6 they flew to Brisbane with the Royal Flying Doctor service.

Mitchell was first diagnosed with a malignant tumour in his abdomen on August 30, 2011.

Undergoing scans, mum Rochelle said they were unsure of the extent of the latest relapse.

"We do know there is a tumour where his last one was but we don't know if that's the only spot," she said.

"But if anything we've learnt the quicker you act the better the outcome."

The family strives to keep positive while also keeping the community updated on Mitchell's condition on Facebook, Mitchell's Journey.

"It's a good outlet for us to raise awareness that these cases are out there and we need to find a cure."
