Six-year-old to jet to America for pioneering cancer treatment

Guy Ryan has been battling a brain tumour since he was just 12 months-old and has endured 20 separate operations and two long cycles of chemotherapy. Now Guy is set to jet off to America for a nine-week course of proton beam therapy treatment his family hope will freeze the tumour to stop it growing back. The treatment at a specialist hospital in Oklahoma is being funded on the NHS after a panel of health chiefs discussed his case and gave the go-ahead.
