Ken Norris, Lisa's father, said,” Although she still has scars on the back on her head she thinks it's just scabbing and it will probably fall off in the end. She is back at school and said it was funny being with her friends again”

According to her parents, the girl has always been upbeat and has never left her condition bog her down. Her mother Liz said: "She has been brilliant through this.
