SIX-year-old Molly Moore, who spoke for the first time this month after having a stroke in August, has been offered a further three months recovery treatment.
Molly, from Offord Cluny has been treated for three months by The Children's Trust at its centre in Surrey and is regaining the use of her limbs. Pleased with her progress, the trust has recommended another three months work with Molly. However, the treatment costs
�7,000 a week and her family was anxious that the Cambridgeshire Primary Trust might not fund it.
Her relieved mother, Katie, 37, told The Hunts Post: "This is great news. We are delighted that Molly can stay at the Childrens Trust for another three months.

"She has made an amazing recovery so far with their help. We can't wait to see what the next three months brings."
The little girl was born with a rare condition, called PHACE syndrome, which in her case affects the arteries in the brain. She had her first stroke at 17 months but that caused no lasting damage.

As reported by The Hunts Post last week, the second stroke left Molly unable to move, speak or swallow.
Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust's decision means Molly can attend the centre until July.
Molly's story has also sparked the Offords community into action and a group of parents of children at her school are preparing for a fundraising 10-mile run. The money will be used to help the Moore family adapt their home.
The 10 Miles for Molly run in Sandy is on Sunday, April 11.
