A CT scan revealed that Malia's recent "tummy aches" were caused by a large tumor lodged in her abdomen. A biopsy confirmed that Malia had stage IV neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Tu survive, Malia's little body endured 6 rounds of chemo, tumor resection surgery, a stem cell transplant, removal of a kidney and an adrenal gland, 12 rounds of radiation, countless transfusions and immunotherapy. The good news, as of July 2012, Malia has had No Evidence of Disease (NED). However, the rate of relapse with neuroblastoma is high and there is no cure for a relapsed child.
