'I've got some good news, I am cancer-free': Nine-year-old Irish girl celebrates after agonising six-year cancer battle

THE FAMILY of a young Irish girl are overjoyed to announce that she's officially cancer-free after a gruelling six-year battle with the disease.

Róisín Price, from Co. Tipperary, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in February 2015, when she was just three.

The road has been incredibly long and incredibly difficult for both Róisín and her family, but last week, they announced on social media that the nine-year-old was in remission.

"After a long three weeks waiting for results, we found out this morning that Róisín has no detectable Leukaemia cells," her mother Clara said.

"She is in remission and cancer-free. For now, the plan is to continue monitoring closely and have bone marrow samples taken every month for six months.

"Words cannot describe how we feel. It is such a relief to get great news. Róisín continues to show how strong and brace she is and I am in awe of her.

"Her determination cannot be matched. She is an inspiration to me and everyone."
