This adorable baby girl with a huge cancerous tumour on her mouth is being flown to the UK to undergo treatment on her rare condition.
Ainul Mardhiah Ahmad Safiuddin, nine months old, suffers from a rare tumour of the mouth and is due to travel from her home in the state constituency of Ayer Molek, in south-western Malacca State in Malaysia to London.

Her dad, 24-year-old Ahmad Safiuddin Ahmad Razak thanked all those who had donated to pay for Ainul to be flown to the UK with Malaysia Airlines and he says they are just waiting for the tickets to be processed.
Two doctors from a private hospital in Malaysia will fly with the family to London where another medical expert will reportedly be waiting to greet them at London Airport.
Razak did not confirm which London hospital his daughter will be treated in but he said flying could prove “risky” for his daughter because of her condition.
Images show how the cancerous tumour, which is rare and derived from germ cells, has almost completely enveloped Ainul’s mouth.
Germ-cell tumours outside of the ovaries and testis are often birth defects resulting from errors during the development of the embryo.
She will undergo an MRI in London before a decision is made on how to proceed. An MRI was carried out in Malaysia but was reportedly unclear.
It is not known whether her treatment will be paid for privately or on the NHS.
The baby girl’s mum, Nurul Erwani Zaidi, who is also 24, said Ainul’s tumour had grown bigger despite the fact the youngster had been undergoing chemotherapy since the age of three months.
Zaidi said Ainul had become less active and could no longer move her tiny body.
