I Am Shauna Rae: Shauna Rae Survived Childhood Cancer
Shauna Rae was a perfectly healthy and happy baby when she was born, but unfortunately she was diagnosed with a very rare form of brain cancer at just 6 months old. Naturally, her whole family was affected and her mother prayed for her baby’s life to remain intact and sought the medical help she so desperately needed.
Shauna Rae underwent chemotherapy and thankfully her life was saved. After such a terrifying fight for her health, it seemed that Shauna had finally been saved, and no one was waiting for the news that came next.
The life-saving treatment that Shauna underwent resulted in a serious and very unwelcome side effect that no one could have foreseen and for which no one could have prepared.
During the course of the treatment, Shauna’s pituitary gland was damaged and stopped functioning normally, which meant that she could no longer grow. When her pituitary gland stopped working, her entire growth process was stunted and there was nothing anyone could do.
