American actress Mia Tyler has urged the public to support a fundraising campaign set up in honour of Upton infant Erin Cross.
The 37-year-old daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler asked her 38,000 Twitter followers to donate to the GoFundMe appeal set up by supporters of the five-year-old, who recently suffered a relapse of after being cleared of the acute lymphoblastic leukaemia she has suffered from since the age of two.
Her parents Sarah and Ant, a teacher at Bishops Bluecoat High School, have spent the last two months at Alder Hey Children's Hospital by their daughter's bedside while she undergoes intensive treatment to get her back into remission, something that eventually may have to involve a bone marrow transplant.
More than £1,000 has so far been raised for Erin's fund, which will go towards helping Sarah and Ant survive day to day as they spend time supporting Erin.
In a Facebook post on Erin's page All About Erin, her parents wrote: "We can't thank everyone enough for the fantastic donations to Erin's fund. "Over £1,000 has been donated now, which we are very grateful for. These funds are needed more than ever now due to the fact we will be spending a lot of time at different hospitals.
"Erin's bone marrow transplant will take place at Manchester Children's Hospital and if she needs any other treatment to get her in remission for transplant this will take place at either Bristol, GOSH or Manchester or possibly even Sheffield."
