Family’s plea for help to get cancer-stricken girl home from Mexico
Fraserburgh family tells of heartache
THE North-east family of a cancer-stricken little girl today said they feared she may lose her fight for life stranded in Mexico.
Brave Olivia Downie flew to Tijuana earlier this month to undergo specialist treatment.
But the bedridden seven-year-old is not responding and doctors have refused permission for her to fly home to Fraserburgh without medical support. They now face the worst-case scenario of having to raise almost £140,000 to get her back to the North-east.
