Baby Girl Beɑts Brain Cɑncer And Mom Helps Her Ring The Bell As She Leaves Hospital

When Leann Borden and her husband welcomed baby Lillian into the world last September they were over the moon. Imagine their terror when after medical staff noticed that she wasn’t moving her arms and legs properly, they learned that she had brain cɑncer.

Little Lillian spent the first months of her life fighting this cruel disease, but the little survivor just got the all clear and went home to mom and dad.

The stage three to four malignant glioma in Lily’s brainstem was usually an inoperable type of tumor. As battles with the insurance company ensued, her parents waited anxiously. They eventually received approval for genetic testing and targeted chemotherɑpy.

The approved chemotherɑpy was a new treatment designed to target Lily’s form of cɑncer. While her family fought hard, the scan eventually showed fantastic results. During the third week after treatment, Lily’s MRI revealed that the cɑncer had disappeared without a trace.

When she was two months old, Lily finally went home with her parents. Although she showed no signs of cɑncer, doctors continued to treat her for another three weeks. She went strong and her cɑncer-free status was confirmed, as reported here on ABC Action News.

Finally, the day everyone has been waiting for has arrived. Lily, with the help of her mother, rang a special bell at the hospital to celebrate the end of the treatment. Lily has officially beɑten cɑncer!
