Mum hopes Lily-Mae's song can get back on track for Christmas

THE mum of a little girl battling a rare cancer has urged the country to get behind a charity song in her honour in a bid to take the Christmas number one title.

Judith Sibley said she had been "overwhelmed" with the support for the charity single, 'Tiny Dancer', recording in aid of her four-year-old daughter Lily-Mae Morrison.

The song was knocked off the number-one slot this week by 'X Factor' winner James Arthur. However, supporters are hoping that it could regain the top slot by this weekend.

"I'm hoping there might be one more push to bring it back to number one for this weekend. James Arthur has a fantastic career ahead of him but Lily-Mae will only get this one shot," said Judith yesterday.

Those behind the charity single hope to hit 50,000 sales this week to secure the top slot. Tests showed that despite repeated bouts of aggressive chemotherapy, Lily-Mae's organs were holding up well.

Which means Lily-Mae will get to enjoy Christmas at home and will not return to Crumlin for treatment until January 6.

The single 'Tiny Dancer' is available on iTunes.
