Collaborative Care Against Cancer

Camaya, one of three identical triplets, was a snuggly, happy baby until around 7 months old, when her parents noticed she was unusually listless and fussy. A rapid series of tests determined Camaya had an aggressive type of brain cancer called an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor.

Her Children's Mercy team, led by neuro-oncologist Kevin Ginn, MD, had to get creative with the type and sequence of Camaya's treatments in order to attack the tumor without additional damage to her brain. Read more on Camaya's journey through chemotherapy, surgery and proton therapy.
