13-year-old Thomas Dodd is looking for his lost relatives after he lost his parents to cancer. Breast cancer killed his mother 10 years ago, while thyroid cancer claimed his father's life three years ago.
Thomas, who lives with grandparents Chris and David Brown, in Higham, now says he wants to get in touch with his relatives and feels he has at least one cousin.
"Thomas had to watch his father die. It was tragic for him," said his maternal grandmother Chris. "He always knew that his mum had also died from cancer. But it was when he was very little and he doesn't remember it."
Chris also told The Sun that Thomas may have cousins and that she wanted him to get in touch with them.
