Katie heads to Oklahoma for tumour treatment

An 11-year-old girl was today flying to America to undergo revolutionary treatment for an inoperable brain tumour.

Its position made it inoperable, and doctors decided the best treatment would be proton therapy – the latest, highly accurate form of radiation treatment not yet generally available in the UK.
