A CARING musician has dedicated a song to a brave Erskine tot who is battling an aggressive form of cancer.

Nadia Allan, whose stage name is Nadia Bella, sang her own version of Let it Go from Disney film Frozen for three-year-old Rebecca McKenna, who is being treated for stage-four neuroblastoma.

Rebecca’s parents Chris and Victoria are trying to raise £140,000 to send her for a drug trial in America which is not available on the NHS but could decrease her chance of relapse.

When 19-year-old Paisley woman Nadia heard about the campaign, she was eager to do something to help – and settled on singing a song for Rebecca.

Chris said: “It’s just so nice that Nadia did that for Rebecca.

“Frozen is Rebecca’s favourite film and it was very heartwarming to hear Nadia sing the song – and she sang it so well.

“I really appreciate everything everyone is doing for Rebecca.”

Nadia, who works for children’s charity Barnardo’s, decided to start up a Facebook page promoting her music four years ago.

Since then, it has gained almost 1,500 followers.

Nadia said: “When I heard about Rebecca and what she was going through, I was really impressed by what a strong wee girl she is.

“I wanted to see if there was something I could do to help, so I messaged her page and her parents asked if I would sing a song for her.

“Her parents said she was really happy and it got quite a lot of shares.

“She really is an inspiration.”

Neuroblastoma affects around 100 youngsters in the UK each year and has the highest mortality rate of any children’s cancer.

Although Rebecca is receiving treatment at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, the chance of her relapsing within two years is as high as 80 per cent.

Chris, 37, described how Rebecca first fell ill in mid-January after complaining of pain in her left leg and of an inflamed ear.

While the ear problem cleared up after a visit to the doctor, the issues with her leg continued.

Days later, she couldn’t walk.

She was then referred to hospital for tests, with doctors delivering the devastating diagnosis three weeks later.
