Reaching the shore was all that
the mother of our little angel Yoanna had longed for and her wish has finally
come to reality as Youanna has completed the cancer treatment phase and started
the follow-up stage, at the Children’s Cancer Hospital 57357.
Yoanna was only one-year-old
when she started to cry from unidentified abdominal agonizing pain and diarrhea
that lasted for several days for which only antibiotics were the only possible
treatment to alleviate the symptoms. “Thanks to the medical team in CCHE
57357, my daughter got the right diagnosis immediately upon her
admittance ‘, shares Yoanna’s Mother, explaining that her daughter was
fortunate to get the right diagnosis immediately and that wouldn’t have
happened if it weren’t for the considerable experience of the doctors in the
field of oncology at the hospital.
In 2017 the little angel was
admitted to the hospital where further checks had been carried out and an
abdominal mass had been detected .She was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma
(liver cancer that is a rare type of disease in children) at a mid-stage of
illness severity which required a speedy interference and to start the
treatment protocol straight away.
“Knowing how to deal with a
patient as young as Yoanna to alleviate her fears, is the key to a successful
treatment plan and a speedy recovery”, Said Dr. Saied Abd El- Hameed, the
primary oncologist of Yoanna explaining that the little girl had shown a great
response to the chemotherapy treatment in-spite of being admitted to the
hospital at a mid-stage of illness severity.
“The good news for us was
that the whole tumor had been removed during the surgery”, shares
Yoanna’s mother, explaining that after the fourth chemotherapy
cycle, the medical condition of her daughter enabled her to go through
the surgical intervention.
After completing the treatment
protocol of six chemotherapy cycles, examinations have shown that there
was no more evidence of the disease which brought forth hope, joy, and a happy
ending to the treatment story of Yoanna .
