Cancer patient, Abbian ‘Abbie’ Ntshabele, is recovering well from the post-operation fungal infection that saw her re-admitted to hospital recently.

The mother of the 14-year-old girl, Lerato Ntshabele, said that after the fungal infection was washed out her daughter is getting better. She also posted a video of her daughter online and wrote on Please Help Abbie Get Well facebook page that: “Yaaay! Abbie left the room for the first time since her OP (operation).

On Sunday, Lerato posted pictures of herself, Olly Murs who paid Abbie a surprise visit and her daughter who seemed happy.
