A 10-year-old girl from Utah, USA, became the youngest patient in the world diagnosed with breast cancer and managed to survive.
This is Krisi Turner, who was diagnosed with a tumor in her chest when she was 8 years old in 2015. Until then, the young girl has not even bought her first bra, but her parents, both of whom had previously struggled with cancer, faced the situation with particular concern, and went straight to the hospital.
The family was greatly helped by the third doctor to whom they were addressed, and just one month after the tumor was identified, little Christie was subjected to mastectomy by removing all of the right breast tissue to prevent the spread of rare secretory cancer to the lymph nodes.
“Honestly, with everything we have gone, she goes very well,” says the mother of the 10-year-old girl, stressing that another adventure has not prevented her daughter from continuing her life at all.
As she said, she had to explain to her daughter that only one chest will develop in her body, but she does not seem to be particularly concerned about it. Little Christie will begin the process of restoring her breast when she necomes older.
