A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl has gleefully told the world she has “kicked cancer’s butt” following a two-year battle with the disease, The Sun reports. Georgiana Pooley was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February 2014 and wasn’t able to play outside with her friends because her immune system was so low.
However, her family are now celebrating following the news she was in remission. They were told her Georgiana’s treatment had worked days before she turned four, and it was the best possible present.
Her mum Beki, 44, said: “It makes you think of the last two-and-a-half years and what Georgi has been through. “She has fought her way through it – there are no words, I cannot even begin to say how we feel.
“We are elated.” Friends and family were thrilled with the news, which is why they shot a video to mark the occasion. Beki said: “The celebratory video was taken when she was playing in her bedroom.
“She was sat singing, ‘I kicked cancer’s butt’ over and over again. “She doesn’t fully understand what she has done. “But she knows she’s been poorly.” Georgiana first developed flu-like symptoms and doctors initially thought she had a virus.
When she started having fits she was taken to hospital and had blood tests, which is when the cancer was found. Although Beki, Georgiana dad Stuart and sister Taylor-Rose, 11, are all thrilled the tot is recovering, they can’t help worrying about what the future holds.
Beki explained: “Nine times out of ten, if a child is going to relapse it will be in the first six months. “We are still on tenterhooks and will be until the end of the year. “Georgi is due to have her last chemotherapy session in three weeks and will have to continue to take her medication until summer.
“Once the chemotherapy has finished, she will be able to play outside and with her friends as normal. “Doctors say she will be a different little girl, she’ll have more energy and we will see all the characteristics we would have done before.”
The family are currently raising money to take Georgiana to Disneyland.
