A young girl from Ipswich has beaten leukaemia after having the condition for two years.
Erin Colley was diagnosed with the cancer at the age of two and had to be treated with chemotherapy sessions.
But after three years Erin, who is now five, has had her final treatment and been given the all clear. And on the day of her last chemotherapy Whitton Primary School, which Erin attends, held a fundraiser for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Pupils at the school were allowed to come into class wearing orange, which is the colour for leukaemia awareness.
Erin’s mother Lisa said: “She’s been brilliant. It’s been very difficult for us.
“The school have been brilliant too. They made a little room just for her for nurses to come in to the school and do blood tests.
“There’s been days she couldn’t go but they have been fantastic.”
