Last week, the North Iowa Times detailed the story of Shaun Mohs, a 9-year-old McGregor boy who is battling a brain tumor for the second time in his young life.
The first was discovered in April 2009, when Shaun was just 2.5 years old. Doctors treated the tumor aggressively from May through October of that year, with chemotherapy killing it, explained Shaun’s mom, Misty Jones.
“It’s still there; it’s just dead,” she noted, adding that, in the proceeding years, doctors at Mayo Clinic in Rochester have routinely monitored the tumor to make sure it doesn’t grow.
