The photograph that moved the world, now the little girl is celebrating some fantastic news.

Australian girl, Hayley Brown, was pictured in October 2016 after she fell asleep leaning on her father, Andrew, as they sat on a couch in hospital.

The little girl could be seen without hair – and with just one single eyelash remaining after aggressive chemotherapy treatment..

‘That one last eyelash has been hanging on, on it’s own, for a few weeks now,’ Mr Brown, a Melbourne-based comedian, captioned the photo at the time.

His little girl had been diagnosed with cancer in June that year – after doctors discovered a five centimetre tumour growing inside her nose.

Hayley’s dad has now shared some happy news with New Idea.

Just before Christmas, they were told his little girl is in complete remission.

‘Very happy family here right now,’ Andrew – who blogs as Blog Daddy of 4 – said.

There is still an ongoing journey for Hayley, with many more tests in the future and her dad also added “as well as trying to capture the portion of Hayley’s childhood that she can never get back.”

We wish Hayley all the best. This is such great news!
