KILWINNING’ S Wee Warrior is home for Christmas – a day his family feared they might never see.

Kieran Crichton is looking forward to spending the festive season in his own house with mum Senga, 48, and older brother Darren, 23, after spending nine months in hospital receiving treatment for five brain tumours.

Senga said she is delighted and grateful to be spending Christmas in their own house. She said: “It will be great to have both my boys under the same roof again. I am looking forward to finally relaxing after this year.

“We have spent most of this year in hospital and I know some of the kids who were in hospital at the same time as Kieran won’t be at home so it’s not lost on me how lucky we are. I’m just grateful for that.

“When Kieran was first diagnosed we had no idea how things we going to go so I didn’t expect to be spending Christmas at home.”

We revealed last month that 13-year-old Kieran had been given the all clear from Medulloblastoma which was discovered in February this year after Senga noticed he was rapidly losing weight and pushed doctors for tests.

Kieran, who also has autism, underwent brain surgery at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children on March 2, to remove the biggest tumour. That operation which left him with posterior fossa syndrome, which affected his ability to speak and walk.

But Senga says since he has been given the all clear, the Kilwinning Academy pupil has gone from strength to strength.

She said: “Kieran has been doing great since he got out of hospital and has been getting into the festive spirit and going to the panto. It’s great to see him enjoying himself again. We are back at the hospital at the end of January for scans and they will be looking at his legs and see what progress he is making.”
