Nothing But A Miracle Can Explain What Happened To This Texas Girl's Aggressive Brain Tumor

One little girl in Texas just recieved what could only be explained as a miracle right from the hands of God. In June, 11-year-old Roxli Doss was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an aggressive brain cancer which, according to The Brain Tumor Charity, often spreads to other areas of the brain or into the spinal cord and is nearly impossible to treat with conventional means.

“It is very rare, but when we see it, it is a devastating disease,” said Dr. Virginia Harrod of Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas, according to USA Today. “You have decreased ability to swallow, sometimes vision loss, decreased ability to talk, eventually difficulty with breathing.”

While her parents, Gena and Scott Doss, did everything within their power for Roxli, they had come to a point where prayer was their only option.

"We got [a miracle],” Gena, rejoiced. “Praise God we did,” Scott added. When Roxli went in for an MRI to track the tumor's growth, what they saw on the screen was unbelievable. Her tumor had vanished!

“At Dell Children’s, Texas Children’s, at Dana-Farber, at John Hopkins, and MD Anderson, all agreed it was DIPG,” Scott explained.

“When I first saw Roxli’s MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable,” Dr. Harrod added. “The tumor is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual.”

Although she will still be monitored as a precautionary measure, Roxli's family is trusting God's healing hand. “Everyday we still say it,” Gena said, “it’s kind of our family thing that God healed Roxli.”
