Her Daughter starts Complaining of a Bad Headaches. Then Doctors Look at her MRI and See It…
This girl, Stephanie Lipscomb, was a 20-year-old nursing student when she began to get headaches. After a trip to the hospital, Stephanie was hit with unthinkable news that would forever change the course of her life. Although it was difficult for her to process, she was diagnosed with glioblastoma — a brain tumor the size of a tennis ball. With a ton of radiation and chemotherapy, she was able to remove 98 percent of the tumor. Things looked good, until the cancer came back.
There were no options except for an experimental treatment that had never been tried on a human before. Doctors would inject Lipscomb’s brain with polio. She and her mom agreed that with death looming, she had nothing left to lose.
The bizarre treatment worked. The polio began to kill the cancer which kickstarted the immune system to do the rest of the work. The brain tumor shrank over the course of 21 months until it was completely gone. Doctors see no cancer in her MRI, only a remaining hole from a previous surgery. It was a miracle.
