Girl's brain tumour 'disappears'

4th February 2010

A three-year-old girl from Derbyshire has surprised doctors by recovering from an inoperable brain tumour.

Liberty Finn had been receiving chemotherapy for the tumour, but had become very ill from the side-effects and had stopped treatment for nine months. Professor Richard Grundy, of Queens Medical Centre, said: "Whether the chemotherapy has achieved such progress or whether Liberty's body has done it alone is not the most important thing in this case. But Liberty has had an extremely good response, both in terms of her disease shrinking dramatically but also with an improvement in her vision."
