Dr. Charlie Teo's miracle girl who fought brain cancer returned to Australia after treatment in Germany.
Amelia & # 39; Milli & # 39; Lucas and her parents landed in Perth on Tuesday afternoon when her father, Grant Lucas, announced their arrival on social media.
& # 39; We are home, everyone has just landed & # 39 ;, Lucas wrote on Team Millstar's Facebook page.
The 12-year-old flew to Bochum in western Germany in an attempt to lose the remaining two percent of a life-threatening brain tumor in her brain.

She made headlines after her family was forced to finance more than $ 150,000 crowd-fund to pay controversial physician Charlie Teo's surgery costs.
The risky operation performed by the Sydney-based neurosurgeon was a great success and saw Milli running three days later.
Many doctors refused to operate Milli for fear that the invasive operation could lead to paralysis or even death.
After surgery, she underwent four weeks of alternative treatment offered in Germany with daily doses of chemotherapy and hyperthermia.
Dr. Teo said that Milli & # 39; s operation meant he had to navigate the brainstem – & # 39; the no-go zone & # 39; – where most doctors do not touch each other.
He also described the operation as one of the & # 39; more difficult & # 39; actions that he has performed during his career.
& # 39; They (the family) know the risks, they know it is not curative and can reduce her quality of life, but they are just not ready to give up. It's a brave decision, & he said.

Milli & # 39; s mother, Monika Smirk, heard that her own cancer had returned days after her daughter's successful surgery.
The 47-year-old lives with a rare gene disposition known as Li-Fraumeni Syndrome (LFS) and is one of fewer than 1,000 people in the world with the disease.
The mother of three had a double breast amputation and hysterectomy three years ago.
In addition to the debilitating condition of Milli, her 15-year-old sister Tess was also diagnosed with a brain tumor.
