It was a time of high emotion for a mother from Nevada who was blessed enough to ring a cancer-free bell for her 4-month-old daughter recently.
Sparks, Nevada resident Leann Borden could hardly contain her tear-flow while she rang the bell at the Oakland Children’s Hospital, with Lillian Grace Borden grasping the cord while being held by her daddy, Patrick Borden.
“Everyone in the hospital is in shock,” Leann told KGO. “They say it’s magic. I say it’s faith.”
Lilian was born on September 5, 2019. When a hospital nurse noticed the baby was not properly moving her legs and arms, an MRI was done and doctors found a tumor close to her spinal cord and brain stem.
According to Lili’s GoFundMe page through which the family hopes to cover her medical expenses, the MRI was received by specialists in Oakland, California.
The doctors were not able to physically treat the tumor due to its location, hence they opted for a type of chemotherapy that had worked on such tumors, KGO reported.
Following a three-week-long chemo session, another MRI was done and doctors found that the tumor had disappeared.
Lillian was allowed to go home in November, and after a few more treatments, in January the baby was declared to be cancer-free.
“I want to thank Dr. (Caroline) Hastings for saving my baby. You guys are all incredible. I’ve never met such amazing people in my whole life,” Leann Borden said in a Facebook video that showed the bell-ringing ceremony.
