Family of Isla Caton burgled as she continues treatment

Bone marrow results received today show Isla Caton has gone completely into remission

The family of 5-year-old Isla Caton have been burgled while she receives treatment for neuroblastoma in Spain. 

The Hornchurch girl was declared cancer free in March and has been receiving specialist treatment in Barcelona to prevent it returning. 

However, burglars broke into her home in Spain and stole thousands of pounds worth of belongings at around 3am last Friday, 9 August. 

“I still don’t feel safe, the house is on lock-down,” said Isla’s mother, Nicola Caton, after thieves broke down an electric gate to get into her property. 

“Both me and my dad haven’t slept for a week,” she added, saying she would have been home alone when it happened if her dad hadn’t recently flown over. 

“To think someone has been in your house is bad enough but that it happened while you were actually asleep, and you missed it, is really scary.”

Nicola says the money taken should have gone towards supporting Isla

Isla was due to be in hospital the following day at 9am but the family’s car had also been taken. 

“We had about two hours sleep and we had no car, so we had no way to get there,” Nicola continued. 

It was also impossible to order a taxi as her car seat was stolen and she could not use public transport as she didn’t have a buggy. 

A replacement push chair, which matches Isla’s weight, has now been delivered from the UK. 

On top of causing property damage, the thieves took their car, a laptop and other valuables.

Nicola estimates it cost the family more than ¬£3,000, which she says should have gone towards Isla’s treatment.

However, she is relieved no one was hurt and today the family received bone marrow results which show Isla is completely in remission. 

“For every bad person there is 10 good,” Nicola told Time 107.5. 

“Everybody has done so much already with Isla’s treatment and people are still willing to go that extra mile to help us with this as well. 

“We’re truly grateful to everybody,” she concluded. 

A JustGiving page has been set up by a friend of the family, Clare Everitt, to replace the stolen items.
