The parents of a girl who has been fighting a rare form of cancer say they are shocked and relived as scans now suggest the disease has disappeared.
Six-year-old Fraja Simpson, from North Yorkshire, has had extensive treatment and surgery for neuroblastoma after being diagnosed with the disease early last year. The aggressive childhood cancer targets the nervous system.
Her parents, Garry and Michelle Simpson, say doctors have told them her treatment seems to have worked.
Following Fraja's diagnosis, the Simpsons started a campaign to raise half a million pounds to take her to America for treatment she cannot receive here.
The family say their fundraising will continue in case Fraja suffers a relapse, something they say happens in about 60% of patients.
