Isla Caton, 7, passes away from cancer after five year battle

Isla Caton passed away in the early hours of this morning

A seven-year-old girl from Hornchurch has passed away from cancer.

Isla Caton had been fighting stage four neuroblastoma since she was two, undergoing various treatment including a 12-hour surgery to remove a tumour. 

Her mum Nicola, posted on social media today (Tuesday, 25 January) to break the news saying “Isla passed away about 3.15am this morning completely peacefully.”

In 2018, her parents were told she had three months to live and so took her to Spain for life-saving treatment.

They were forced to return home when the pandemic hit and had been trying to find the right trial in the UK ever since. 

Before Christmas, doctors told Isla’s mother that the seven-year-old had weeks left to live as the latest round of chemotherapy had not worked and her bone marrow was failing. 


West Ham FC have paid tribute on Twitter this morning saying: “The hearts of everyone in the West Ham United family are broken this morning.

“Rest in peace brave, beautiful Isla, you were an inspiration to us all.”
