A BROTHER and sister told they had cancer on the same date a year apart have both been given the all-clear.

Usually inseparable Marley and Harmony Young were forced apart for treatment due to the pandemic.

But the duo have now been reunited and are spending every minute together. Mum Becci, 27, told The Sun on Sunday: “They won’t leave each other’s sides. 

“Covid has kept them apart and now they are making up for it.”

Doctors discovered Marley, now seven, had bladder cancer on June 9, 2019. He had months of chemo and surgery.

But as his treatment came to an end, Harmony, now nine, started complaining of arm pain — and was diagnosed on June 9 last year as a rare bone cancer.

Baker Becci, who lives in Sandwich, Kent, with firefighter husband Aaron, 31, and their youngest son Ralphie, six, said: “I was in complete shock. To have two young children both diagnosed with cancer was devastating. But it wasn’t genetic. The cancers are not connected.”

Harmony also had chemo and surgery and got her all-clear in February. Becci added: “We just feel very lucky they’re both still alive and here with us.”
