THE heartbroken family of tragic tot Layla Greene are planning to give her a colourful send-off tomorrow as they say a final farewell.

Three-year-old Layla, from Renfrew, had been battling a rare form of cancer known as neuroblastoma but sadly passed away earlier this month.

Her funeral takes place tomorrow, with mourners being asked to wear bright colours, rather than the traditional black, as they celebrate the joy she brought to those who knew her.

A service will take place at the Normandy Hotel, Renfrew, at 11am before mourners move on to Hawkhead Cemetery, in Paisley.

Members of the community who have been touched by Layla’s bravery can pay their respects by wearing bright colours and lining the streets from McClue Road to Kirklandneuk Road at 11.15am or from Inchinnan Road to Paisley Road at 11.30am.

Louise Cunningham, Layla’s mum, said: “We ask that everyone who is attending wears bright colours. Also, we will be taking family flowers only as there will be collection buckets at the service.

“All money raised will go to the Schiehallion Ward at the Royal Hospital for Children, where Layla was treated.”

Layla was diagnosed with stage four of neuroblastoma in March last year.

She had undergone a stem cell transplant and chemotherapy but, last month, the family were told her condition had worsened.

Louise and Layla’s other loved ones then had to pin their hopes on a new treatment, known as the Beacon trial. Tragically, the illness became too much for Layla to cope with and she died shortly after 9pm on January 13.

A JustGiving page was set up to create a ‘fun memories’ list for Layla, containing activities to bring a smile to her face.

Almost £7,000 of the £10,000 target had been raised to fulfil her dying wishes, including a helicopter trip, motorbike ride and princess party.

Sadly, she will never get to fulfil those dreams, but it is hoped the money will pay for some sort of memorial to the courageous tot.

Louise added: “Thank you to everyone who gave to Layla’s fundraising page over the past year. We appreciate your amazing support.”
