CANCER patient Sophie Edward has a new look – and she is delighted.
The youngster’s hair is starting to grow back and it’s curly.
Since the eight-year-old Newsome girl finished her chemotherapy her straight hair now has some lovely waves.
Dad Andrew told the Examiner he couldn’t believe it – because before Sophie’s hair was poker straight.
And she lost her hair while undergoing several courses of chemotherapy.
Sophie has just had stem cell treatment in Leeds to try to cure her of leukaemia.
Doctors decided to try the modern treatment on her after a bone marrow transplant failed.
She is the first child to have the ground-breaking treatment in Leeds.
Andrew said: “It’s still a long way to go and we’re waiting on the results.”
On Sunday, family friend Julie Field ran the London Marathon to raise money for charity Children with Leukaemia.
The charity supports children like Sophie through their illness.
