When you hear the word 'cancer', chances are you look down at your feet, unsure of how to react. You certainly don't smile or laugh, that's for sure.


But this brave little boy has chosen to see the funny side of the disease.


10-year-old Felix Brown from Bournemouth, England is undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, after being diagnosed just six weeks ago.


But rather than letting the illness get in the way of life, he's decided to share his experiences of cancer in an uplifting Facebook diary.



Felix posts about everything from the struggles of fatigue to his nan having a thing for his doctor.


One post explains how the steroids are basically turning him into the hulk. Another states that he’s losing his hair because of the treatment, but that he “still has more hair than dad!”


The entries give readers a glimpse of what life is like for a child with cancer – and it’s safe to say we could all take something away from his immense positivity and spirit.


Here are some of his witty posts:


"Be afraid...Be very afraid"


Watch out, these steroids are really starting to kick in... #hulksmash #grrrrrrr #moody
