Four Year Old Cancer Victim To Be Bridesmaid

A four year old girl from Watford who needs £100,000 for life-saving treatment, is going to be a bridesmaid at her parent's wedding today.

Little Luna Petagine suffers an Ependymoma brain tumour which attacks the central nervous system and doctors in the UK have told her parents there is nothing more they can do for her.

But the family have been given a glimmer of hope - a pioneering new treatment, only available in the United States, may give Luna a chance of life.

The family's plight has captured the hearts of the local community and so far £40,000 has been raised.

But today is a day of celebration - something the family haven't had a chance to do for a long time.

Luna's mum Lucy says ''It's the first thing we've had celebrate in a long time, well it's the only thing we've had to celebrate, and all of our friends who've done so much for us it's a chance for us all to get together and actually have a nice occasion''
