Mum-of-three Jayne, who lives with her daughter in Blackpool, Lancs., said: It was so shocking. The first thing she said was am I going to lose my hair? and I said yes. I suffer from alopecia so I wear a wig, and she said we could go wig-shopping together. I thought she would be upset and crying but she just took it really well.

Ayisha will now have to undergo a potentially lifesaving bone marrow transplant - and the family hopes the donor might be just around the corner, as her older brothers Joshua, 17, and Connor, 16, are currently being tested as a possible match. Jayne said: My oldest son is 17 and him and Ayisha have always been a bit like chalk and cheese - but since the diagnosis
they have become much closer. Its definitely brought the children together. Ayisha Green with her brothers Joshua and Connor and her stepdad James

We thought she was just going to need the chemotherapy and that we would be OK, but within 10 minutes of being told she was responding well to the chemotherapy we were told she would need a transplant. It could be another eight weeks until she can get out and spend a week or two at home, and then shell come back for more treatment. South Shore Academy Ayisha, who is continuing her school studies from her hospital bed, said: When I went to see my local GP she said it was tonsillitis but we didnt think it was because it reoccurred so quickly. Then I lost a lot of weight. I would take one bite and then I wasnt hungry. I lost
about half my body weight. My family have been very supportive.

Jayne added: I want to let everyone know, if your children are coming down with an infection and its always the same thing, it might be a sign of something more serious. Y
ou can see a doctor but its not every day they take a blood test, which is how we found out about Ayisha. Leukaemia can often show itself through tonsillitis because it affects the immune system. The prognosis is that its treatable and they are giving her all the treatment she needs. Theres a chance it could reoccur but we will cross that bridge if we get to it.
