Filipino toddler who sought treatment in Singapore for 'mystery disease' has died

SINGAPORE - Three year-old Caitlin Soleil Lucas, who came to Singapore to seek treatment for a "mystery disease" that turned out to be leukaemia, has died. Just before noon on Thursday (March 31), her parents posted: "Today our daughter has gone to Jesus already" on her Facebook page, Courageous Caitie. This was followed by the family's last picture together. Caitlin's illness first surfaced in September last year as insect bites on her ankle. These later turned into lesions that spread across her body. The family flew from Manila to Singapore in February after doctors in the Philippines were unable to diagnose her condition. In early March, doctors at the National University Hospital confirmed that she had juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia, a rare and serious condition.
