A BRAVE little girl whose brain tumour grew to the size of a golf ball has won her battle for survival.
Four-year-old Sienna Middleton had surgery and months of chemo before getting the all-clear.
She fell sick when she was a baby and her condition had doctors puzzled before a scan spotted the tumour at the back of her head.
Mum Jade, 26, explained “Sienna started having problems in November 2018 when we noticed that her eyes were shaking. She wasn’t as mobile as she used to be.
“Then she had her injections and was very sick afterwards, but our GP recommended Calpol and rest.”
She was diagnosed with gastroenteritis twice and given antibiotics.

玉, of Nottingham, 添加: “Then one day she fell off the sofa, bumped her head and her eyes rolled back.
“I took her straight to hospital.”
It was then she was told it was stage-four medulloblastoma — a fast-growing cancer.
Surgery removed 95 per cent of the tumour and chemo took the remaining five per cent at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.
玉, who also lives with partner Josh Middleton and older daughter Alayiah-Mai, 七, 添加: “Sienna never stopped smiling but it broke our hearts watching her stare death in the face.”
Sienna still has check-ups but there is so far no sign of it returning.
