High Hopes for UF's Pediatric Brain Tumor Program
An Orlando area boy is looking to a unique group of doctors, nurses, and researchers in North Central Florida. 4 year old Terrance Wilson and his mother Jakata Young are hoping UF's Pedratic Brain Tumor Program will help heal the inoperable tumor he has. Director and Doctor Amy Smith knows Young like so many others put their trust in them.
"If that cure is just not possible in the world, we are going to walk through the journey with them and were not going to say there isn't any more that we can do and I'm sorry and go home. We are going to comb the world to see if there is anything we can find for them," said Smith.
