FRIENDS and family of a terminally-ill six-year-old girl have just one month to raise £380,000 to save her life.

Little Millie D’Cruz-Parsley suffers from a rare genetic condition that will kill her before she reaches the age of 15.

The one hope of beating the muscle-wasting condition, called Juvenile Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, lies in a pioneering bone marrow and cord blood transplant available only in America.
