Girl Is Healthy Again – level 3
About eight months ago, 15-year-old Joey Martin started getting headaches. At first, she was told it was migraines; however, a CT scan revealed a tumor on the stem of her brain.
Dr. Douglas Graham, Chief of the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center in Atlanta, said that thanks to advances in medicine, it was possible to cure children in a way that was less toxic and had less side effects to the patient. Scientists have discovered a type of antibody that they use to cut off the blood supply to the tumor and make it shrink.
Every second of her fight against cancer, Joey dreamed of getting back onto the field and playing soccer. Last month, it became reality, and her parents said that what Joey had done was an absolute miracle.
Difficult words: CT scan (a series of X-ray images taken from different angles that allow doctors to see inside a body), stem (the central area of a brain), antibody (a protein or a small part produced in the blood that fights diseases).
