Doctors baffled after 11-year-old girl’s inoperable brain tumor disappears


Doctors have no explanation of how an 11-year-old girl’s inoperable brain tumor has disappeared.

Roxi Doss was diagnosed with the tumor, called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, in June.

Doss went through weeks of radiation treatment for the tumor, although there is no cure.

Her family held a benefit for her in August, and all her parents, Scott and Gena, could do was pray for a miracle.

“And we got it,” said Gena to KVUE.

“Praise God we did,” said Scott.

Doctors can’t explain how or why the tumor disappeared.

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

The Dosses double checked Roxi’s scans to confirm the results. Right now, she is continuing to undergo treatments as a precaution.
