Brave Lily is smiles bet­ter af­ter get­ting the all-clear

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Lit­tle Lily Dou­glas trav­elled to Amer­ica for pi­o­neer­ing treat­ment at the week­end with a big smile on her face — as she was told she is of­fi­cially can­cer-free.

Lily (10) from Perth was di­ag­nosed with stage-four Ewing’s Sar­coma in April last year and only had a five per cent chance of sur­vival.

How­ever, fol­low­ing ex­ten­sive chemo­ther­apy treat­ment and a num­ber of ma­jor surg­eries, she was given the all-clear on Fri­day, April 13. And on Satur­day, Lily and her fam­ily trav­elled to Jack­sonville in Florida to un­dergo 10 weeks of pro­ton ther­apy, which will help make sure there are no“rogue”can­cer cells left in her body.

Mum Jane said:“It is just amazing to sit for a minute and think she is can­cer-free. “We have waited so long to hear it.”
