Gutsy kid of two years beats cancer

Published On: Tue, Nov 22nd, 2011 | Skin cancer | By BioNews

A British kid diagnosed with leukaemia has overcome all odds as doctors revealed she is now in remission.

Erin Colley has had repeated bouts of chemotherapy since she was diagnosed with leukaemia in August aged just two, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Erin’s proud mum, Lisa, 38, said: “She was so brave considering she is so young and that she was in hospital for more than five weeks.

“It was horrible to see someone so little go through that. But she was amazing, such a huge inspiration to all of us,” the mother-of-three added.
