“In September 2011, our pediatrician referred us to MCH to see a specialist because my daughter was having sharp pains in her upper left corner of the stomach and side. An ultrasound led to the discovery of a tumor (a lesion) in my daughter’s spleen. Dr. Felix Ramirez-Seijas referred us to Dr. Leopoldo Malvezzi, who in conjunction with Dr. Ana Duarte, prescribed a medication for 6 months to attempt to reduce the size of the lesion. After the 6 months were up, Dr. Malvezzi performed surgery to remove the lesion. Today Caitlyn feels amazing and no longer has pain, thanks to all the amazing doctors at Miami Children's Hospital!”
Caitlyn says, “A month after my surgery I felt l great and thanks to MCH I had no pain. I can now do cartwheels without my mom telling me to be careful and not to hurt myself :). Thank you again!”
