PETALING JAYA: It has been a year since Ainul Mardhiah underwent an operation to remove a rare germ cell tumour from her mouth in London.

The surgery on June 10 last year was performed by a group of specialist doctors from different fields, together with UK-based trainee surgeon Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri, who brought the baby and her parents to London to seek treatment.

“Time has passed by so quickly. Today, Ainul is a cheerful baby. Thank you to all those involved directly and indirectly with this surgery, ” Dr Nur Amalina posted on Twitter on Wednesday (June 10).

The five-hour surgery to remove the 200g tumour, which cost more than RM1mil, was made possible by the generosity of the Malaysian public.

The plight of the baby girl also attracted the attention of then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who visited her during his trip to Britain.

It received the public's attention when a video recording of the baby with the tumour in her mouth went viral on social media.
