 Brain Tumor Disappears in 3-year-old Girl Without Treatment
In a stunning development, 3-year-old Liberty Rose Finn has fought off a deadly brain tumor on her own without any treatment.

The tumor was detected six weeks after Liberty and her twin Destiny were born in 2006. The tumor, which was wrapped around her optic nerve was considered inoperable. Liberty underwent 18 months of grueling chemotherapy without any success.

However a scan taken nine months after the chemo was stopped showed nearly no signs of the deadly tumor. "We were speechless and couldn't believe it. She is one in a million. Her own body fought it," said her delighted mother Dawn.

Professor Richard Grundy, of Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham,said the doctors were pleased with the results of the scan, but he could not throw any light on how the cancer almost disappeared.
