A mãe de Hannah Powell-Auslam encontrou um caroço debaixo do braço da filha no mês passado, quando a ajudava a vestir-se.

Preocupada, Carrie levou a filha ao médico, que a diagnosticou com carcinoma secretório invasivo.

No início deste mês a menina passou por uma mastectomia, operação para a extracção da mama.

O cancro, no entanto, espalhou-se para um nódulo e Hannah tem que passar por outra operação, ou por tratamento de radioterapia.

A história da menina chamou a atenção dos media e do público americanos.

Os pais da criança - Carrie e Jeremy - criaram um site, www.ourlittlesweetpea.com, em que descrevem diariamente a batalha contra o cancro e promovem campanhas para arrecadar fundos para o tratamento da filha.

O site também é visto como uma forma de ajudar a família a ultrapassar o trauma.

A mãe de Hannah, Carrie, falou à imprensa americana sobre a sua surpresa ao receber o diagnóstico: «Deveria ser a última coisa na cabeça dela. Meninas de 10 anos não têm cancro da mama».

Com o aparecimento do cancro, Hannah decidiu tornar-se num exemplo para que as outras crianças da sua idade conversem com os pais sobre qualquer mudança que percebam no corpo.

A família também elogia a atitude positiva que a menina tem mantido diante da doença. Mas segundo a mãe, tudo o que ela quer agora é voltar à escola e ser uma «criança normal».

O cancro da mama é o tipo mais comum de cancro entre as mulheres, segundo a Organização Mundial de Saúde, e a cada ano são diagnosticados mais de 1,2 milhões de casos em todo o mundo.

Especialistas, no entanto, lembram à imprensa americana que a doença é extremamente rara entre as crianças e alertaram que o excesso de atenção dado ao caso pode provocar um medo desnecessário entre os pais.

The mother of Hannah Powell-Auslam found a lump under the arm of her daughter last month, when helped to dress.

Concerned, Carrie took her daughter to the doctor that diagnosed with invasive secretory carcinoma.

Earlier this month the girl went through a mastectomy, operation for the extraction of the breast.

The cancer, however, is spread to a node and Hannah has to go through another operation, or by treatment of radiotherapy.

The story of the girl drew the attention of media and American public.

The child's parents - Carrie and Jeremy - have created a site, www.ourlittlesweetpea.com, which describes the daily battle against cancer and promote campaigns to raise funds for the treatment of her daughter.

The site is also seen as a way to help the family overcome the trauma.

Hannah's mother, Carrie, told the American press about his surprise on receiving the diagnosis: "It should be the last thing on her head. Girls of 10 years do not have breast cancer.

With the onset of cancer, Hannah decided to become an example to other children their age to talk with parents about any changes that perceive the body.

The family also praised the positive attitude that has kept the girl in front of the disease. But according to the mother, what she wants now is back to school and be a "normal kid".

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women, according to World Health Organization, and each year are diagnosed more than 1.2 million cases worldwide.

Experts, however, remind the American press that the disease is extremely rare among children and warned that over-attention given to the case can cause unnecessary fear among parents.
