Dig deep like Simon Cowell and you can help sick children in hospital this Christmas


LITTLE Tayler Lindridge is looking forward to a Christmas she feared she might never see.

When the seven-year-old was diagnosed in April with stage-four kidney cancer, which had spread to her liver and lungs, doctors feared the worst.

You could bring festive cheer to a child like Little Tayler Lindridge, who was diagnosed with stage-four kidney cancer in April

But after chemotherapy and surgery she has defied expectations and has been declared cancer-free.

Mum Chelsea, 27, said: I thought her life might be cut short but shes incredible my Christmas miracle.

Last night Chelsea also thanked Sun on Sunday readers who have donated to our Xmas Quids For Kids Campaign for Tayler and other seriously ill children.

She said: Thank you so much it will make such a difference this Christmas.

This coming week is your LAST CHANCE to donate to our campaign, online or by text until midnight next Sunday. It will help the Great North Child-rens Hospital Foundation in Newcastle, where Tayler has been treated, Great Ormond Street Hospital Childrens Charity and University Hospitals Birm-ingham Charity.

The X Factors Simon Cowell, dad to Eric, five, also urges you to help. He said: It can make a big difference.

Tayler was diagnosed after complaining of a swollen abdomen. She had six weeks of chemo, an op on June 18 then more chemo.

Teaching assistant Chelsea, of Hartlepool, who stopped work to care for Tayler, said: It was terrifying. She lost her hair so fast with the chemo and also went down to 2st 9lb.

But eight days after her surgery, scans showed Tayler was in the clear. She has since been undergoing final chemo, which ends on Boxing Day and now also has another treat to look forward to, with Chelsea due to give birth to a baby girl by her boyfriend next month.

Chelsea said: Tayler cant wait to be a big sister. Shes so excited and is going to be like another little mummy.
