Mirna’s Brain Tumor Removed

IHC volunteers removed Mirna’s brain tumor sev­eral years ago. Her home country of Belize did not have the medical resources or expertise to remove the tumor, so IHC stepped in to help.

Unfortunately, another brain tumor recently ap­peared. Because Mirna is now 19, she and her mother worried that IHC would not be able to help this time. But IHC makes a commitment to follow-up with each patient, even as they grow older.

After a successful surgery, Mirna has started an aggressive radiation treatment along with physical therapy. The combination of radiation and physical therapy is challenging but Mirna has a strong spirit and is staying upbeat!
