Edith’s mother, Valerie, felt helpless. Her daughter had a dangerous tumor on her face, just like she did. Though not hereditary, Edith’s tumor was growing in size right alongside her mother’s. And time was running out. “As it started to grow, I got scared,” recalls Edith. “I was worried it would grow as big as my mother’s.”
