The parents of a five-year-old girl suffering from cancer are trying to raise £500,000 to take to America for treatment she cannot get here.

Fraja Simpson from North Yorkshire was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in January.

It is a rare and aggressive childhood cancer which affects the nervous system.

Fraja is currently undergoing a gruelling 12 month treatment plan, including chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy.

But her parents say there are different drugs available in America to help her fight the disease and they are determined to raise the money to take her there.
