A BRAVE little girl who is battling a rare form of cancer has been released from hospital after a "minor miracle" meant she did not have to undergo an aggressive and painful operation.

Lily-Mae Morrison (4) has been allowed to return home to Claregalway, Co Galway, much to the delight of her parents and younger brother Evan.

She suffers from neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer, which affects just one in 100,000 children in Ireland, with only a 30pc to 40pc chance of survival.

A charity version of the Elton John song 'Tiny Dancer' is topping the Irish charts to raise money for her treatment.
