A Perth businessman has donated £10,000 towards cancer treatment for Lily Douglas.
The 10-year-old was given the all-clear earlier this month after battling stage-four Ewing’s sarcoma, but discovered last week that the illness is back and more aggressive than before. Fair City business owners sprang into action, setting up a dedicated bank account for donations and adding their own funds.
It was going to be put towards Lily and her mum Jane’s upcoming holiday to Florida, but her mother said she will spend it on treatment in America which is not currently available in the UK.
Lily previously went through pioneering proton beam therapy in the US, which was thought to have worked.
Kilmac director Athole McDonald has boosted the fund with a £10,000 donation, making the possibility of further American treatment more realistic.
