Tasha’s Tumor

Tasha’s parents cried when they looked at her: with a tumor on her forehead and a cleft palate that kept her from eating, how long could their little daughter survive? Read Transcript


Reporter: 2-YEAR-OLD

TASHA IS NOT YET AWARE OF

THE CLEFT LIP OR THE LUMP

GROWING ON HER FOREHEAD, BUT

HER PARENTS CERTAINLY ARE.

AS I WAS HOLDING HER IN

MY ARMS, I LOOKED AT HER,

AND I COULDN'T HOLD BACK MY

TEARS.

I WONDER IF HER CONDITION

COULD BE FIXED.

WHENEVER I GIVE HER MILK OR

FOOD, IT CAME OUT OF HER

NOSE.

I WONDERED HOW LONG PEOPLE

SURVIVE.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS LOVE HER VERY MUCH.

TASHA AND I VERY CLOSE

BECAUSE I CARE FOR HER MOST

OF THE TIME.

WHENEVER I HAVE TO GO TO THE

MARKET, SHE CRIES, WANTING

TO GO WITH ME.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS ARE CHRISTIANS.

THEY LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN IN

INDONESIA, WHERE LAMSON

EARNS A LIVING SELLING BIRD

FEED.

WITH HIS SMALL INCOME, THEY

KNEW THAT SURGERY WAS OUT OF

THE QUESTION.

CBN MADE IT RESPONSIBLE FOR

TASHA TO HAVE THE SURGERY

FOR FREE.

THE NEWS IS SUCH

ENCOURAGEMENT.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS GOD'S WAY

OF PROVIDING HEALING FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

Reporter: TASHA'S CLEFT

LIP SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFUL.

WE THEN ARRANGED FOR THE

SECOND SURGERY TO REMOVE THE

GROWTH ON HER FOREHEAD.

YOU HAVE CHANGED OUR

LIFE.

OUR FEARS FOR TASHA ARE

GONE.

WE FEEL LIKE LEAPING FOR

JOY.

I'M THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE

WHO HELPED HER.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

CBN AND THAT THEY WILL KEEP

HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED.
