Lila’s Story

In late September of 2009, sweet Lila was diagnosed with brain cancer. The doctors believe it is likely that she was born with this tumor. It is a multi-focal, Grade 2 astrocytoma.

In October 2009, Lila began the first of 10 rounds of very intense chemotherapy treatments. They involved her being at the hospital for three, 8-hour days of treatment every 4 weeks. We saw results and stability with these drugs. Lila's doctors were very encouraged by the results.
