DOUBLE cancer sufferer Bailey Coppack has celebrated the end of gruelling radiotherapy treatment.
The 13-year-old, of Mirfield, held a party for family and friends last Saturday after completing treatment on a brain tumour.
She now has to wait until June for a scan to confirm that the radiotherapy has been successful.
Castle Hall Academy pupil Bailey has both a brain tumour and leukaemia at odds of millons to one.
The leukaemia is thankfully in remission but the brain tumour, a Pilocytic Astrocytoma, spread to her spine recently.
That led to more radiotherapy, which has just been completed and has left Bailey completely drained.
Step-father Graham Ellis said: â€œBailey is a tough girl but towards the end of the radiotherapy she was reaching her physical limits.
â€œBailey doesnâ€™t complain, but for the last couple of weeks sheâ€™s felt sick most days and is quite weak.
â€œWhat we need to do now is build up her mental and physical strength and get her feeling like sheâ€™s on the mend.â€
The party was held at Huddersfield Townâ€™s Canalside training ground after the clubâ€™s home match against Hull City.
The football club were among many groups and individuals who raised cash for her family to go with her to the USA for treatment on the brain tumour.
The tumour is wrapped around her brain stem and the only method of combating its spread is proton therapy, which is not currently available in Britain.
Soon after finishing the proton therapy Bailey was diagnosed with leukaemia after feeling tired and sick for weeks.
Graham and her mother Lisa Coppack, both 42, and Baileyâ€™s sister Ellie, 12, and brother Jamie, three, have been with her throughout.
He added: â€œItâ€™s been a rollercoaster year with good news and setbacks. Now we just want to get back to some kind of normality.
â€œCancer has completely taken over our lives. Weâ€™ve had to deal with it but now we must start to live as normal a life as possible.â€
