Kieran’s Prom Night

KMTeenager Kieran Maxwell tonight had an unusual escort to his school prom.
A proud school teacher had written to Durham Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg asking for help in escorting a remarkable young man to his prom.
Kieran Maxwell from Heighington is a far from ordinary 15 year old boy who has attended Hummersknott Academy during the last five years.
Kieran unfortunately fell ill at the age of 12 when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Kieran has subsequently undergone 3 – 4 years of intense treatment and an amputation due to the tumours that he has suffered that were untreatable.
Kieran has battled every day of the past 3 years and yet he has never given into his illness. He has faced every challenge with a huge smile. Even when Kieran lost his leg he turned the entire situation around to be beneficial and this has enhanced the quality of his life. Kieran is now pursuing the Paralympics with his gymnastics and is now running aided by his prosthetic leg enabling him to follow his dreams and aspirations for the future.
The one dream that Kieran had was to join the Police and on  Friday 11th July 2014, his school prom was held at Hardwick Hall in Sedgefield, one of the hi-lights of the night is how the young people arrive. A number of off duty police officers had volunteered their services to escort Kieran to the prom. (Kieran was unaware)
Ron Hogg said, “I was genuinely moved when Kieran’s teacher wrote to me. I offered my full support and am extremely proud of the officers who have volunteered their services to fulfil Kieran’s dream.
