Brave youngster beating illness.
Despite being diagnosed more than two years ago with an aggressive form of tumour normally found in adults, Elena Kidd has continued to cheat death and baffle doctors with her medical progress.
Mum Lisa Kidd, 35, of Bainbridge Avenue, South Shields, said: "It was good news when we had the latest scan, which again showed Elena's tumour has stopped growing.
"The doctors cannot understand it.
"The last few scans have shown the tumour is not growing and we are now looking towards remission."
Despite being given just months to live after she was first diagnosed with the glioblastoma multiforme tumour, Elena managed to start classes at Bamburgh School in South Shields.
