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.
Within just 24 hours of Erin’s story going viral, around £90,000 was raised via public donations to Erin’s fundraising page.
