Little Girl with Cancer Reunites with Dad after Almost Two Months Apart Due to Lockdown
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the little girl who was undergoing cancer treatment was separated from her father. Recently, she got the chance to reunite with him after almost two months.
Mila Sneddon, 4, couldn't help but shed tears of joy when at last she got to embrace her father Scott for the first time in seven weeks, as reported by ITV.
As she underwent chemotherapy for her leukemia, Mila was intentionally kept away from her father. Since he was reporting to work every day, he posed a health risk to his daughter.
Scott moved out of his family home in Scotland temporarily to keep his daughter safe. He just interacted with Mila through a window or door.
In any case, when Scott recently learned that he wouldn't continue working, all of that changed. He and his daughter finally reunited after quarantining himself for a while.
The little girl was being cared for by her mother Lynda, while Scott was away. Lynda would need to comfort Mila through tough moments of tears at times.

She has cancer.
To keep her safe during the Coronavirus pandemic her dad has been isolating away from her. For seven weeks — they haven't been able to hug.
Today they did.
Mila appeared to briefly disregard her struggles when her father made daily visits to their home. Scott found out that he was being furloughed weeks into their separation.
The doting father then retreated into isolation. After the experts told him that he was cleared to return home, Scott showed up to visit Mila like usual.
The pair laughed and embraced. Mila then started to cry tears of joy.
'Mila wants us to tell everybody to stay at home so we can protect her and thousands and thousands of people like her.'— ITV News (@itvnews) March 25, 2020
