Her parents were given the wonderful news today

Erin Cross has been told the treatment she has been undergoing in Seattle has now worked

Chester schoolgirl Erin Cross is now in remission from leukaemia following weeks of lifesaving treatment in Seattle.

Her parents Sarah and Antony have been told by doctors that the Car T Cell therapy the six-year-old girl had been undergoing since July has worked and that a test for bone marrow test which would ultimately be what saved Erin's life, has come back negative and clear of disease.

A jubilant Sarah wrote on Erin's Facebook page: "Erin is in remission! We've just had the phone call! Most amazing news ever!"

It comes after big hearted donors raised a staggering £140,000 to pay for Erin to have the lifesaving treatment, months after she suffered a relapse from the acute lymphoblastic leukaemia that she was first diagnosed with in 2012.
