Claire was born with a cancerous teratoma on her posterior. It was resected and Claire has to visit Children's Hospital in St. Louis periodically to be anesthetized and have scans and blood tests to be sure that she is staying cancer free. Claire is two now and so far so good! The doctors are watching a small mass in the affected area but her blood test are good and so far the mass isn't really changing.
