BOSTON (CBS) – A family from Ireland who is struggling to pay medical bills is getting some help in Boston.
Three-year-old Alisha Savage of County Cork is battling a rare and often deadly brain tumor. Her parents brought her to Dana Farber in Boston for life-saving medical care.
Alisha’s mother Michelle says the brain tumor was diagnosed just a few months after her second birthday. “It’s a very aggressive tumor and kids usually get it under the age of three,” Michelle Savage says.
