CANCER patient Ashya King looked happy and smiled when the Olive Press paid a visit to his Costa del Sol home this week.
Playing with his brothers and sisters, he is clearly showing signs of progress since moving back to his Casares home following treatment in the Czech Republic.
“Ashya’s doing really well, he is happy and smiling again,” his father Brett told the Olive Press at the three-bedroom luxury apartment at Casares del Mar.
“We are so glad to be home and have the family back together at last.”
He continued: “We are so grateful for all the support we have received from people here in Spain as well as from around the world.”
He was later seen with his family shopping in Corte Ingles, in Puerto Banus, looking happy and relaxed.
Brother Naveed meanwhile has also posted a moving video to his YouTube account to show Ashya’s recovery since he received ‘successful’ proton beam therapy in Prague last month.
The five-year-old will now continue to be treated at the HC Marbella where Argentinian specialist Doctor Hernan Cortes-Funes is in charge of his health plan.
Ashya hit world headlines in August when his parents, Brett and Naghmeh, discharged him from Southampton General hospital sparking an international manhunt.
Following their brief arrest, the Kings were reunited and Ashya was allowed to fly to Prague to receive the treatment his parents had chosen for him.
