A MUM from Hoyland has hailed the bravery of her baby girl who is on the last leg of treatment after having a tumour removed from her throat.

Isabel and her twin sister, Alexandra, were delivered by Caesarean last September and Isabel's tumour - the size of an orange - was picked up on a scan at the 33-week stage of Maureen Wyatt's pregnancy.

The cancerous growth was removed and Isabel now has four weeks left of her six-month chemotherapy plan.

Maureen, 33, said: "She is a little fighter and she's doing really really well. Obviously with her being so little it is not affecting her that much and she just seems to handle it pretty well." 

The tumour weighed a sixth of Isabel's 3lb 9oz bodyweight and Maureen says Isabel is smaller than her twin sister as a result.

Dr Anna Jenkins who's treating Isabel said that she's expecting her to make a full recovery.
