The inoperable tumor of an 11-year-old Texas girl has suddenly vanished, leaving doctors stunned. Doctors may be mystified, but the girl’s family is joyful that their prayers has been answered.
The young girl named Roxli Doss was diagnosed last summer with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG according to a report by KVUE-TV. Roxli had a radiation treatment in August.
According to Boston’s Children Hospital, nearly 300 children a year are diagnosed with DIPG.
Symptoms of the tumor includes difficulty breathing, talking, and swallowing.
When an MRI was performed to monitor the progress of the tumor, the result showed that the tumor has disappeared.
Dr. Virginia Harrod with Dell Children’s Medical Center told KVUE said:
“When I first saw Roxli’s MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable. The tumor is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual.”
Roxli’s mother Gena Doss told KVUE:
“Everyday we still say it’s kind of our family thing that God healed Roxli.”
Roxli is healthy, and has been spending time horseback riding.
