The parents of an 11-year-old Texas girl are thanking God after hearing from doctors that an inoperable brain tumor seems to have disappeared.
Roxli Doss, from Hays County, south of Austin, was diagnosed in June with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive brain tumor with a lowsurvival rate. But doctors at Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin now claim they can’t spot traces of the life-threatening tumor on Roxli’s MRI.
“It’s extraordinarily rare to have this type of near complete resolution of this disease,” Dr. Virginia Harrod, co-chief of the hospital’s pediatric neuro-oncology department and one of Roxli’s doctors, told HuffPost. “It’s unusual and atypical and something we were all very pleased with.”
Roxli’s parents told ABC affiliate KVUE-TV in Austin that they believe a divine miracle saved their little girl’s life.
