12-year-old with DIPG Seeks Innovative Treatment

FREDERICK, Md. (KK) – The community is rallying around a special 12-year-old girl with a rare form of brain cancer. In 2016, Kaisy Knott found out she has DIPG. She was told her had six to nine months to live.

Nearly two years later, she’s doing better with innovative treatment. Kaisy and her mother Melany have to go to Mexico for a pet scan.

“It’s saving her life. There’s nothing here in the U.S. that offers anything. We can’t get anything here in the U.S and this is all we’ve got. We’ve got one chance at this tumor, and we picked the right place,” said Melany Knott.
