In a case that’s stunned doctors, a Texas girl’s inoperable brain tumor has vanished.

KVUE reports 11-year-old Roxli Doss was diagnosed in June with a tumor called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG.

“It was in early June, Rox started having headaches and the headaches developed into nausea and she even had double vision, “said her father, Scott Doss.

” It’s very weird, but when we see it, it’s a devastating disease, “Dr. Virginia Harrod told Dell Children‘s Medical Center.” You’ve decreased ability to swallow, sometimes vision loss, reduced ability to talk, eventually difficulty with breathing. “

Though her family was told there was no cure for DIPG, the girl went through weeks of radiation. A benefit was held in Buda in August and Roxli’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $ 25,000.

“The doctors guide us, but really the true guidance that we are looking for is from God because that’s who we need our help from right now, and we’re really just praying for a miracle,” Scott Doss said in August.

Now, it appears their prayers have been answered.

“When I first saw Roxli’s MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable,” said Harrod. “The tumor is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual.”

Doctors can not explain why Roxli’s tumor disappeared. [1

9659003] “At Dell Children’s, Texas Children’s, Dana-Farber, John Hopkins, and MD Anderson, all agreed it was DIPG,” said Scott.

Physicians double-checked scans to confirm the results. Roxli will continue to undergo treatments such as immunotherapy, as a precaution.

The Doss family said there’s no question they have God to thank.

“Everyday we still say it,” said Gena Doss. “It’s kind of our family thing that God healed Roxli. “

” We did not know how long she would be healthy and look here, she’s just doing awesome, “said Scott Doss.
