Brave Lincoln girl, 3, tragically loses battle with cancer

This story is over

Courageous three-year-old toddler, Scarlett Gray from Lincoln, has passed away after tragically losing her year-long battle with cancer.

Scarlett was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Stage 4, an extremely aggressive, rare childhood cancer in August 2015.

The brave little girl started her treatment shortly after being diagnosed and spent months on end in hospital.

Post operative complications, however, meant that private tratment would have been needed, which could have cost more that £400,000.

Parents Andrea and Jamie opened up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the treatment, which raised over £37,000.

Scarlett’s parents said in a statement on her Facebook page that they were utterly heartbroken by the news.

“She went so peacefully in mine and her dad’s arms.

“We had to make a decision that no parent should have to make, but it was the right decision and because of that our little girl is no longer suffering and no longer in pain.

I am so relieved for her, she is free.

“We are so incredibly proud and honoured that we were chosen to be her parents, she was the funniest most caring, loving and intelligent little girl we have ever known.

“And we got to call her ours for three years, there is no bigger honour.

“Sleep tight princess, mummy and daddy love you with all of our hearts.”
