THE BARROW community has shown its support for a young teen who is celebrating her cancer remission.

Madison Elliott was just 16 when she was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a rare and aggressive blood cancer of the lymphatic system, last year.

During her chemotherapy she also came up against neutropenic sepsis.

Describing the news of her remission as a ‘relief’, the teen said she cannot wait to get her life back to ‘normal’.

She celebrated the occasion by going to a Harry Styles concert with her friend Evie.

Madison will be restarting her first year of college in September studying chemistry, biology and psychology.

“I also want to be able to do some of the things I’ve missed out on because of my cancer; holidays, concerts and festivals are top of my list,” said Madison.

Heartfelt thanks were given to the medical professionals who guided her along every step of her journey, as well as to members of the community who gave their support to various fundraisers for Madison and the Christie where she was treated in Manchester.
