Girl Is Healthy Again – level 1

18-09-2020 07:00

Joey Martin is fifteen years old. She loves soccer. Eight months ago, Joey starts to have headaches. Headaches are when your head hurts a lot.

She goes to the doctor. The doctor says that it is nothing serious. However, Joey does not feel good.

Doctors take pictures of Joey’s head. Doctors find a tumor on her brain. Joey is afraid of the therapy. The therapy is usually long and difficult. However, medicine is changing fast.

Doctors find a new therapy. They find a protein. The protein stops the blood that goes to the tumor. The tumor does not get enough blood. It gets smaller. Also, Joey does not feel so bad during the therapy.

Joey’s parents are happy. Joey is healthy again. She plays her first soccer game after the therapy. She feels great in the field.

Difficult words: tumor (a part of the body that starts to grow without control), therapy (the way how doctors fight a disease), protein (a very small part of the human body that is in things like the muscles or hair).
