This is the kind of news we all love to read near Christmas, I’m soo happy for this girl and her family.. I have been convinced again that miracles DO happen! 🙂
Doctors have used an experimental treatment involving the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) to combat a six year old’s leukaemia.
The treatment involved using a disabled form of the virus to reprogram the child’s immune system to attack the cancer cells.
Seven months later, the little girl is in complete remission.
