From No Cure To No Trace


HAYS COUNTY, Texas — By Kalynn Norwood A girl’s inoperable brain tumor is gone and doctors have no explanation. Today, Roxli Doss is doing what she loves, and that’s horseback riding. Girl’s inoperable brain tumor disappears, doctors can’t explain it.

“She is just as active as she ever was,” said Scott Doss, Roxli’s father. It’s hard to imagine that in June doctors diagnosed Roxli with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG.

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

Harrod said the now 11-year-old went through weeks of radiation, even though there is no cure. The family held a benefit for her in August, and the community responded in a big way. At that point, all Gena and Scott Doss could do was pray for a miracle.

And we got it! Praise God!
