A four-year-old girl who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour could miss her half brother’s wedding as she begins radiotherapy.

Last week, the Gazette reported Halstead had come together in support of the family of young Millie Brown after she was diagnosed with a brain stem tumour.

Although the tumour cannot be operated on, the Richard de Clare pupil was due to start radiotherapy at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, yesterday in an effort to prolong her life.

It is hoped she will be well enough to travel back and forth between the hospital and her home in Ronald Road, Halstead, for the three-week course of treatment.

However, it is likely she will have to be under close observation for the first few days, meaning she is likely to miss the wedding of her half brother Scott Brown, 29, who is due to tie the knot with fiancee Carly Wright, 26, today.

The couple, who live in Audley End, near Gestingthorpe, have been among the main driving forces behind the Magical Millie fundraising efforts.
