Girl with tumor recovering in the U.S.A.

Almost two weeks after her life-saving surgery in Knoxville, Tennessee, twelve year old Catarina Ishim is on her way to recovery. It has been almost two weeks since she completed about forty hours of surgery, where doctors removed an enormous cancerous tumor from her face. While that is just the first round, she has a long way to go before she sees her family again. Doctors anticipate that she will be home in about five or six months. In an interview with WBIR TV-10, a local television station in Knoxville, it was noted that Catarina is doing things she wasn’t able to do before. We take a look at Monday’s report filed by WBIR’s Sean Dreher.

    With all the bad and depressing news at home, here is a ray of hope, for the girl and maybe the future of the Jewel.

    I hope we can all join in prayer for those things.
