Meet Emma. Tenacious, Strong, Benevolent. She is Beauty Revived.
Emma, then a junior, had grown over two inches every year since seventh grade, after a long period of virtually constant height. Her mom was concerned about how rapidly the growth was occurring. After two years of consulting many doctors, a verdict was reached that Emma was simply a tall girl with an unusual growth pattern, but no health issues. However, her mom had a gut feeling that something was wrong- and pushed for an MRI of her pituitary gland just to be positive that there were no issues. Other than the rapid growth, Emma had absolutely no symptoms of ill health. It came as a complete shock when the MRI results came back with a positive finding of a benign tumor on her brain causing severe buildup of fluid (known as Hydrocephalus) and immense pressure that required surgery. Thankfully, the surgery was successful! Emma had to miss three weeks of school, three drill team competitions, and eventually become an inactive member of her team due to some temporary restrictions. Through it all, Emma has remained extremely positive and has persevered through every challenge put in her way. Now, nine months post-surgery, she has had great results on every follow-up scan and has come out of this a radiant and strong young woman.
