A heartbreaking photo of a cancer-stricken four-year-old and her dad kissing through a window has been shared by her mother.
Mila Sneddon, from Falkirk, Scotland, was diagnosed with leukaemia in November last year and is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy.
To keep her safe, parents Lynda Sneddon, 36, and Scott Sneddon, 50, decided to self-isolating in different homes.
Lynda shared an emotional photo of her Mila kissing her Dad through the window to highlight the importance of self-isolation and social distancing.
She said: “Initially we felt bad to separate the family and did consider perhaps we were being too cautious but there’s lots of families out there who have done the same to protect their loved ones.
“I hope the picture makes people realise the importance of self distancing and stop ignoring the guidelines.
“It is difficult for us all but the longer people go out, the longer we will have to stay indoors and Mila is missing her daddy and sister.
“Despite everything that is going on, she remains a happy and funny little girl who jokes with her dad when he comes.”
