THE parents of a schoolgirl who is battling deadly neuroblastoma hope to take her to London for specialist treatment over the next few weeks.

Rosie Veronica Mitchell is fighting the cancer for the third time at only the age of seven and set to undergo radiotherapy at the Beatson in Glasgow within the next two weeks.

Then her mum Donna-Louise Hurrell hopes to take her down south for possible antibody/immunotherapy treatment.

Donna-Louise said: "Hopefully we will go to down to London for specialist treatment before Christmas.

"Then we are discussing with doctors the possibility of other treatments in the new year."

Rosie could be treated by doctors at the University College London Hospital or the Royal Marsden.

Donna-Louise, 40, lives with husband Ross Mitchell, Rosie and their twin sons Dylan and Lucas in Kingston Dock.

She said: "The treatment would be a form of antibody/immunotherapy but we don't know the detail as it's not decided for sure yet.

"It's a possibility we're exploring."

Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that boosts the body's natural defences to fight cancer.

It uses substances made by the body - or in a laboratory - to improve or restore the immune system function and can help by stopping or slowing down the growth of cancer cells.

The community has rallied around Port youngster Rosie and to date an amazing £80,000 has been collected.

But Donna-Louise says in the region of £200,000 could be required to pay for Rosie's treatment.

Julie Jones, 37, is the latest person to join the the cash campaign and has been gearing up to do a skydive since September.

But the architectural assistant who was inspired by Tom Cruise to do the challenge has found that it has really been a 'mission impossible'.

She decided to take the 10,000 feet plunge after seeing an interview where the star challenged James Corden to do a skydive with him.

Julie's attempt to make the jump over St Andrews has proved a bit more difficult.

She said: "The skydive has been postponed twice, first because it was too gusty and then because it was torrential rain.

"I'm hoping it will be third time lucky on Sunday 4th November."

Julie lives with her husband Martin and children, Annie, eight, and Gordon, four, in Glenhuntly Road and knows the family because her daughter is in the same class as Rosie's twin bothers Lucas and Dylan at St John's Primary.

Despite the delay she is delighted that she has already raised £1,310 to help the funds set up by Rosie's parents to pay for cancer treatment.

She said: "I'm really pleased, it's great for Rosie and I want to thank everyone who has supported me.

"The training is done, I just really want to get it over and done with."
