Niamh, five, set for stay in hospital

FIVE-YEAR-OLD Niamh Curry from Wellingborough is set to be transferred to hospital in Oxford for treatment for a blood infection.

The Evening Telegraph reported yesterday that Niamh was in Kettering General Hospital being treated for a chest infection.

Niamh, who is fighting neuroblastoma, was due to travel to Oxford next week for a stem cell reinfusion. She will now stay in hospital in Oxford until after that treatment.

Her dad Chris said: “She is doing well. This is fairly common in oncology children.”
