Beckton girl’s treatment appeal nears halfway mark

AN appeal to raise money for the treatment of a young girl with a rare brain condition is nearing the halfway mark.

The parents of four-year-old Solvita Kadzyte are aiming to raise �22,000 to fly their daughter to China for breakthrough stem cell treatment.

The pioneering operation will allow their daughter to walk and play like any other child.

With the donations total now just short of �10,000, the family have issued a renewed appeal to raise the cash for the treatment, which is due to take place in Beijing in March.

They have already mortgaged their home in Beckton to help meet the costs and need your help to reach their target.
