A TWO-YEAR-OLD girl with just weeks to live was given the royal treatment at the weekend.

Sienna McKie has medulloblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer, and is not expected to be here to celebrate her third birthday in March.

The Polmont youngster has spent most of the year since being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour in hospital.

Despite enduring intensive treatment, which included chemotherapy and blood transfusions, the cancer spread.

When doctors told dad Scott and mum Llana there was nothing more they could do, the couple brought Sienna home to enjoy her last weeks with brothers Jourdan (14) and Nathan (12).

The McKie family is determined to make the most of the time she has left, with Scott taking compassionate leave from his job as a chief submarine engineer to make as many of her wishes as possible come true.

When Andy Campbell of Carriages for All Occasions heard the family’s story, he offered Sienna a horse-drawn carriage ride from her home to Callendar House, where the tot and her parents were treated to afternoon tea.
