Isla recovering following major surgery

Filed: Tuesday, 6th March 2018

An operation to remove a tumour from little Isla Caton has been a success, according to her parents.

The three-year-old, who is suffering from Neuroblastoma and whose plight has captured the hearts of all West Ham supporters - and many from outside the club - underwent surgery to remove a tumour from her brain earlier today, according to a post from her mother.

And fortunately, initial reports suggest that the operation has been a success - as mum Nicola has just confirmed via social media.

Earlier in the day, West Ham captain Mark Noble had sent the following message in support of little Isla, who he carried out onto the pitch ahead of the recent Premier League meeting with AFC Bournemouth.

If you'd like to contribute to the fund to get Isla to the US for much-needed treatment, visit the Bradley Lowery Foundation in order to to make a donation.
