A family from Texas are thanking God after their little girl’s rare and inoperable brain tumor mysteriously disappeared. Doctors are actually unable to explain how and they credit it all to the healing power of Jesus Christ.
Roxli Doss was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) last year in June. This was after the 11 year old girl started suffering from headaches, nausea, and double vision. DIPG is a highly-aggressive and difficult-to-treat tumor located at the base of the brain.
The little girl’s condition was life-threatening to say the least. “It was the worst news we could have had…At Dell Children’s, Texas Children’s, at Dana-Farber, at John Hopkins, and MD Anderson, all agreed it was DIPG.” Roxli’s dad, Scott Doss, explained.
“It is a devastating disease. You have decreased ability to swallow, sometimes vision loss, decreased ability to talk, eventually difficulty with breathing. We don’t have a cure. This is considered a terminal diagnosis.” Dr. Virginia Harrod, one of Roxli’s doctors at Dell Children’s Medical Center, said.
Even so, Roxli underwent 11 weeks of radiation therapy to fight the tumor, while her family established a to help cover the costs of the medical bills.
In a bid to fight the tumor, Roxli underwent radiation therapy for eleven weeks. Her family also sent up a GoFundMe Page to aid with hospital expenses.
Beside all that, the family turned to God, knowing He was the only one who could truly change anything around. Losing their little girl to cancer was a very real scare at this point, it only made sense to hand her over to the Giver Of Life.
“The doctors guide us, but really the true guidance that we’re looking for is from God because that’s who we need our help from right now, and we’re really just praying for a miracle.” Scott said.
What happened next has left doctors speechless!
An MRI scan in September showed that the brain tumor had mysteriously disappeared. Roxli was cancer-free!
“When I first saw Roxli’s MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable. The tumor is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual.” Dr. Harrod confirmed.
Roxli’s parents are convinced that it was God’s doing that healed their child and saved her from imminent death.
“A Miracle!! We all walked out in shock even though we had been begging, praying, asking and believing. Thank you Jesus just wasn’t enough to say.” The family wrote on CaringBridge.org.
“God is using precious Roxli as a vessel for His mighty power! REVIVAL is springing up in hearts everywhere!” Gena Doss, Roxli’s mom, wrote on social media.
