Lucie, was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was just five weeks old. It started with Lucie not feeding well, always asleep and having some big veins in her head. She was taken to the hospital where a CT scan revealed that she has a mass on her brain. An MRI scan confirmed that it was a brain tumour along with hydrocephalus (a build-up of fluid on the brain).
After receiving chemotherapy, Lucie deteriorated and her parents were told to say their last goodbyes. But to everyone’s surprise Lucie’s condition improved and the family was sent home with six monthly check-ups.
