Girl Is Healthy Again – level 2

18-09-2020 07:00

Joey Martin is fifteen years old, and she loves soccer. About eight months ago, she started to have headaches. At first, doctors told her that it was migraines. However, later, they found out that it was a brain tumor.

Joey got scared, and she imagined the long and difficult therapy that she would have to have. However, scientists work hard to find better and more effective ways to work with cancer. Now scientists are able to cut off the blood supply to the tumor. Such therapy makes the tumor smaller, and the therapy does not have so many side effects.

During the therapy, Joey’s hope was to play soccer again. It helped her get better faster. Last month, her hope came true, and she could enjoy another game.

Difficult words: migraine (a big headache that happens a lot, and it can make a person feel very sick), tumor (when a part of the body starts to grow without control), side effect (an effect of a drug or therapy that is usually unpleasant).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
