Christmas medical miracle....

HAYS COUNTY, Texas — An 11-year-old Texas girl who had an inoperable brain tumor has been cured and doctors don’t have an explanation, according to KHOU.

Doctors diagnosed Roxli Doss with an inoperable brain tumor in June called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG, KHOU reports.

The little girl went through weeks of radiation and all her parents, Gena and Scott Doss, could do is pray for a miracle.

And they got it.

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

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

And now with no trace of the tumor, the family is thanking God.

1. Why God intervenes where He does is a mystery -- but a joyful one

 

Wait for the atheists (who by definition have no morals) to come here and try to rain on this parade.

Atheists answer to only themselves. They follow "morality" to the extent that it makes them feel happy. The net result for an atheist if they kill 100 kids in a playground or save 100 puppies from being drowned is the same: Their personal reaction. They follow laws because of the fear of retribution.

It is impossible for an atheist to do anything for any reason other than how it makes him/here feel.

2. I had tears in my eyes when I read this article...

people who don't believe can say what they want. It won't take away from what I know God did here...Just like my boy, who has epilepsy...Last week, we saw a new neuro. She looked at all his records and was amazed. He is 4 years sf and on a super low dose of medicine. About the same starting dose for people who take depakote for migraines. We are talking about tapering off the depakote...People can laugh, make fun of me, I don't care. I know what God can do. I've witnessed it. I'm just so happy for this family.

14. Wonderful news

about your son! I'm very happy to hear both stories.

There's a force in this universe, some call it God, others have different names for it. Whatever it may be I firmly believe it can be tapped into by the power of faith, the brain, the vital life force within all humans, again, whatever label one wishes to use.

I celebrate your faith with you. It very obviously has a powerfully positive impact on you and you share it with us all. Merry Christmas!

9. Untrue, at least for me

Since I have no belief or faith in a higher power it's quite literally, all on me; by that I mean there is no forgiveness or redemption should I do the wrong or immoral thing. I've got no Get Out Of Jail Free card. It would be a stain and guilt I would have to carry to my grave. You can lie to others, but you can't lie to yourself and ultimately that's the person you face in the mirror every morning. Trust me, I have no harsher critic than myself. You don't have to be religious to recognize the inherent rightness of the Golden Rule.

I would argue anyone, religious or not, who only totes the line because they fear punishment or retribution now or in the hereafter doesn't need a god; they need a cop, or at least close supervision.

10. It means there is no difference between mass murder and saving puppies to athists

 

It isn't God as cop. It is God as love.

Anything for atheists is merely biochemical and any act is a mere cost/benefit analysis. Love is merely "crush writ large."

Death happens for all no matter what you do. If there is no God there is no love -- thus there is no morality.

11. Rubbish

Human beings are obviously inherently more valuable than puppies. Well some. I suppose I value my dog far, far more than I do some murderous Islamic jihadi or thug who kicks my door in.

Morality, by it's very nature cannot be dictated or imposed. It simply is. If it were it would be by definition capricious and arbitrary and therefore not moral. One need only look at all the various religions on the earth, each claiming to have the perfect moral guidebook to know that each and every one of them are man made.

Ultimately for me, I simply cannot accept anything on mere faith alone. I have to have empirical, demonstrable proof.

12. Other than cost/benefit what is the downside of doing evil?

 

Part of that cost/benefit being "it makes me feel bad."

Answer: there is none.

13. Is that not the motivator we all come down to?

I feel like utter dirt when I have wronged others undeservedly. I go out of my way to try to make it up to them. Generally speaking that's what we call our conscience. Assuming you are not a psychopath it's what informs us of right from wrong. It's not a matter of feeling merely good or bad without regard for others.

Generally speaking why do we not bludgeon the annoying neighbor to death? Is it because it is against the law, or because it is morally wrong to wantonly take the life of another? I'd hope you say the latter and not the former.

Conversely why would one shoot a person caught in the act of violently abusing a child? Because saving the child from further harm is the morally superior choice to make, more so than valuing or preserving the life of the assailant.

6. Maybe...she would be the first case

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3531714/


More than 70% of children with tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) will survive at least 5 years from diagnosis (Smith et al., 2010; Howlader et al., 2011). However, pediatric CNS tumors represent a heterogeneous group of diseases and the dismal survival of select tumor subtypes, such as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG), is not reflected in this number. The median survival for children with DIPG is less than 1 year from diagnosis (Mandell et al., 1999; Cohen et al., 2011), and no improvement in survival has been realized in more than three decades.

We can watch and see what happens. Radiation can temporarily shrink the tumor, but according to the pt's docs. the tumor is gone. So this would be a first.

19. You are welcome

I am just so happy for this family. We had a little girl in our area who had the same kind of cancer, and sadly, she did not make it.
