Cancer patient Ashya King could return to Spain for treatment

THE family of Ashya King have revealed that he could return to Spain for further treatment following proton beam therapy in Prague. 

Ashya is said to be responding well to treatment and the Kings are now assessing where and how he will be treated next.

Father Brett King has also revealed that their Casares del Mar property might have to be sold following Kids n Cancer UK’s decision to redistribute €63,000 raised for Ashya.

He said: “We have got a doctor who works in Madrid coming to see us soon so he can assess Ashya and his condition.

“The Spanish hospital is going to be really expensive because we need specialist equipment – especially as Ashya is still being fed through a tube.

“We have a lot of legal fees to pay for as well as travel expenses to Spain so we might have to sell our house to pay for it all.”

Kids n Cancer UK has stood by its decision saying it helps families who have no money.

It added that the Kings had received money from other sources and charities.
