Local Middle Schooler Claire Smith Conquers Brain Tumor
Claire Smith’s journey from brain tumor to healing is a testimony to God’s grace and mercy and to the prayer warriors who were there every step of the way.
On today’s broadcast, Home Page Anchor/Correspondent Julianna Vogt has the opportunity to sit down for a visit with this courageous young lady. Claire was just 11 years old when doctors found that the reason for her headaches and pain was the result of a brain tumor. With no time to waste, Claire was scheduled for emergency brain surgery at Geisinger Hospital in Danville.
Claire’s family rallied around her, and she was immediately surrounded by love and prayers from people worldwide. The surgery was performed on December 18th and was proclaimed a success.
Don’t miss today’s broadcast as Claire tells her story with a grateful heart to the Lord and all those friends, family, and teachers who stood by her all the way to victory. Claire also takes a moment to give a huge shoutout to her doctors and medical staff at Geisinger Hospital.
Claire is now 12 years old. She was able to get back to school and even participated in the school play. So, what’s next for this young champion. Sports! Claire is looking forward to joining her school’s volleyball team this next year.
