A mother saved her daughter's life after filming the toddler's "wonky neck" on camera, leading doctors to diagnose her with a brain tumour.
Kay Parsons, 31, from Somerset took her three-year-old daughter Ryleigh Godfrey to the hospital after realising her child's head was unusually tilted to the right.
Doctors initially thought the toddler had a "cricked neck due to sleeping strangely", but Ms Parsons refused to accept the diagnosis.
The mother-of-two began filming Ryleigh walking the house walking and playing with toys showing doctors how her head remained tilted for hours on head.
Doctors then diagnosed Ryleigh with a grade three aggressive brain tumour.
Since her diagnosis last June, the toddler has undergone 13 life-saving operations.
The three-year-old has since rung the cancer bell at hospital after undergoing several chemotherapy treatments, and her five-year-old brother Dominic is helping her get back to normal life.
Ms Parson said: "Doctors thought my daughter was sleeping in another angle to cause her head tilt but it turns out she was living with a brain tumour.
"The first sign was a head tilt to begin with, that lasted about two weeks.
"That stopped a couple of weeks and after that was sickness just once a day and then we noticed her walking had gone really wobbly and that was it, that was when we got referred to a paedetrician.
"Ryleigh has had to go undergo multiple surgeries, she's had to have radiotherapy that was seven weeks of that.
"And it (the tumour) did regrow after radiotherapy so she had to have further surgery, which then meant she had to have her brain shut. And then after that was chemo for four months.
Speaking about Dominic, Ms Parson said: Their bond is really strong, especially going through all this with her. He's been amazing really.
"Now that Ryleigh has ended treatment she is processing quite well with her recovery."
