A Cork toddler who was given less than a 20% chance of survival from a rare form of cancer has made major progress in New York.

Megan Malone has just completed severe chemotherapy to tackle multiple tumours which were diagnosed last October.

Doctors now say her brain appears to have no evidence of cancer, and there are also signs that it has receded on her spine.

Megan's father John Malone said her family are taking her battle one day at a time.

"We were told that she had weeks to live back on the 15th of October," he said.

"And here we are, we've had the last three or four weeks with her almost back to herself.

"Everything from here on in is a blessing. We can't predict the future - we don't know if this disease is going to be cured this time around, or if it will come back.

"We can only hope and pray that it doesn't."
