Madison goes to school
Brave Madison Allan, 6, is back at school after responding well to treatment in Germany.
Her family said the return to lessons was a ‘great sign’ and said that she would now undergo therapy at the new Manchester Children’s Hospital until returning to Germany.
After a relapse, medics in this country had said her cancer was terminal, but Madison has been undergoing hi-tech treatment in the city of Greifswald on the Baltic Coast, currently not available in the UK.
The treatment involves a drug course similar to chemotherapy designed to shrink the tumour wrapped around Madison’s internal organs.
This could be followed by an operation and course of anti-bodies to hopefully clear the cancer altogether.
It is thought that a full range of treatments on the tumour, which Madison has had since the age of 10 months, could cost around £250,000.
At last count the appeal had raised £65,000 but mum Samantha said: “There is money coming in all the time.”
Their are plenty of hurdles ahead for Madison Allan. To find out more about Madison:
