Amanda, my niece, was diagnoised with a desmoid tumor at age 15. A Desmoid tumor that is very rare. It is not malignant but is very aggressive in growth
and often returns. By the time we found this tumor it had rapped it's way
around her uterus, ovaries, urethra, iliac arteries, and some of her large
intestines. What we thought would be a 2 hour surgery took 9 hours
and 5 specialist to complete.
Amanda is tumor free now but not without some losses and complications.
I decided to be a shavee for St Baldricks because of Amanda.
