"I hate tumors with a passion. There was a tumor in my moms womb when i was inside of her and it pushed my twin out"

That sucks, but it`s also very bizarre. I haven`t heard of something like that happening before.

Poor girl...I hope the surgery is a success.
It must have been painful for the parents too, since they had to watch their child go through pain and not be able to do anything about it because of their finances...

I hope that things go well with her, and how can someone go 10 years without going through treatment, how can parents just sit there and watch their child suffer like that. I guess certain circumstances such as no health care or anything could have played a roll, I dunno. I feel so bad :/

Holy. Crap. That`s one giant tumor... sick, dude.

(She doesn`t look 15 at all. I wonder if all her body`s nutrition went to that ginormous growth on her tongue?...)

i love how a lot of you say that the parents are to blame. they probably couldnt afford to get it fix!
im pretty sure she has Neurofibromatosis because thats one of the symptoms. The lady with the 200 lb tumor also had NF

Why didn`t they have it removed when it was just a bean size growth on her tongue? How very sad for the little girl. I suppose the family was waiting for it to grow so large that someone would take pity on them and offer their surgical services for free. Very sad.

That doctor, Jesus Gomez, I saw a show with him on it once. He also removed a giant tumor from the face of a haitian girl.
Poor foreign children without appropriate health care.

"Why the HELL had this not already been removed? Anyway, hope it all goes well :)"

Finances. They were too poor to do anything about it, I would guess. Then a University or hospital hears about these cases and takes them on for free. Whether their motivation is altruism or desire for positive publicity, one can only speculate. I suppose it would depend on the person.

Wow, just leave that thing for 10 years as it slowly grows to mammoth proportions. Good job parents. Or healthcare system. They probably couldn`t afford the procedure. Whoever you want to blame here...
