Mayo Doctors Remove Large Tumor From Toddler’s Face

By Kelley Luckstein

A 3-year-old girl from Haiti is recovering after having a large tumor removed from her face at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

 

Magalie was born with the tumor between her eyes, but it has gotten so big it is threatening her health…

 

a team of 25 doctors and nurses operated on Magalie for 11 hours on Friday. They rebuilt her face where the tumor had been.
