SEPANG: After two months of intenآ­sive treatment in London, 11-month-old Ainul Mardhiah Ahmad Safiuddin has returned home but was whisked off to Hospiآ­tal Kuala Lumpur upon arrival.

“Alhamdulillah (Thank Allah), Ainul is well. I wish to thank all Malaysians for eagerly awaiting her return and for their prayers,” her father Ahmad Safiuddin Ahmad Razak, 24, told reporters before the little girl was brought to HKL for follow-up treatment.

The family arrived on Flight MH003 from London which landed at the KL International Airport at 7.15am yesterday.

Ahmad Safiuddin said his daughter did not encounter any problem during the 12-hour flight. More than 20 family members were on hand to welcome Ainul Mardhiah home as well as her father and mother Nurul Erwani Zaidi, 24. They were accompanied on the flight by volunteer doctors from Malaysia – Avisena Specialist Centre Critical Care Specialist Col (Rtd) Datuk Dr Jaseemudeen Abu Baker and Subang Jaya Medical Centre Anaesthesiology Consultant and Critical Care Specialist Dr Gunalan Arumugam.

Ainul Mardhiah, who was afflicted by “Germ Cell Tumour”, was brought to London on May 25 and underwent a five-hour surgery at the Great Ormond Street Hospital to remove a 200g tumour on June 10.The team of specialists treating her included Malaysian trainee surآ­آ­geon Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri, who had played an instrumental role in getting the girl and parents to London for the much needed treatment.

Not only did the baby’s plight catch the attention of Malaysians after a video recording of her mouth cancer went viral , Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had also visited her during his three-day working visit to Britain last month. — Bernama
