A toddler in the U.K. is facing a fight for life as she battles a rare and aggressive tumor that left her “looking pregnant.” Cleo Keenan has a tumor in her abdomen which caused her stomach to swell up like a balloon.
Her parents Shannon Latham, 23, and father Ryan Keenan, 26, have been told the “little warrior” has a 25 to 35 percent survival rate after being given the devastating diagnosis earlier this month.
The article goes on to state the following:
She was given a CT scan, which revealed the huge tumor inside her abdomen, and she was taken to Manchester Children’s Hospital the next day.
Two weeks later, on April 1, she was diagnosed with stage 3 adrenal carcinoma, a rare disease caused by cancerous cells in the adrenal, or hormone, glands.
“She looked like she was pregnant. I was getting more and more concerned,” Latham said. “Because of her hormone changes, they thought she had a hormone imbalance. It was such a shock when we found out. It’s just begun to sink in because she’s so young and she’s such a bright child. She had always been absolutely healthy. She was like any other 2-year-old.”
Cleo, who lives with her parents and sisters Emelia, 5, and Ellie-Mae, 4, must undergo more chemotherapy before having an operation to remove the malignant tumor and affected adrenal gland later this year.
