Texas girl brain tumor: 11-year-old girl brain tumor disappeared in medical mystery

When the 11-year-old Roxli Doss was diagnosed with what appeared to be a rare, ooperative brain tumor in June, she met it with courage. Each year, approximately 300 children in the United States are diagnosed with this particular brain tumor, known as a diffuse intrinsic ponting membrane or DIPG. There is no cure and less than 1 percent of those who develop a survivor over five years "It's a devastating disease, you have a reduced ability to swallow, sometimes loss of sight, reduced ability to talk. Finally, you are having a hard time to breathe, "said Dr. Virginia Harrod, Roxli, doctor at Dell Children's Medical Center in Austin. 1 9659004] b3-narula-medical-miracle-121819-aircut-frame-1538.jpg "height =" 349 "width =" 620 "class =" lazyload "data-srcset =" https://cbsnews1.cbsistatic.com/ hub / i / r / 2018/12/18 / 8b568dec-174f-49a3-881f-195f5dc839a6 / thumbnail / 620×349 / 1167edbe95e66b29147bf90f6737d674 / b3-narula-medical-miracle-121819-aircut-frame-1538.jpg 1x, https: / /cbsnews2.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r/2018/12/18/8b568dec-174f-49a3-881f-195f5dc839a6/thumbnail/1240×698/538fa3227acfc3082596200751966058/b3-naula-medical-miracle-121819-aircut- frame-1538 .jpg 2x "srcset =" data: image / svg + xml,% 3Csvg% 20xmlns% 3D & # 39; http% 3A% 2F% 2Fwww.w3.org% 2F2000% 2Fsvg% 20viewBox% 3D & # 39; 0% 200% 20620% 20349% 2F% 3E "/> Roxli Doss Doss Family Roxli had months to live.

Doss Family

Roxli had months to live. As she passed through radiation weeks, her parents asked Scott and Gena Doss for a miracle.

“We have it,” said Gena.

“Praise God, we did,” Scott added.

Usually radiation is a prolonged treatment and not a cure. But just over two months after being diagnosed, the tumor completely disappeared.

Doctors can not explain the remarkable answer.

“It was actually incredible. The tumor is undetectable on an MRI scan, which is very rare,” said Dr. Harrod.

Doctors acknowledge that the tumor can return, but currently Roxli is as active as she ever was. The Doss family came Christmas a little early this year.
