The Doctors: Young Girl Battling Brain Tumor
The Doctors explained that they were hosting a special edition of The Doctors in which they would show bonus footage never seen before on the show. First, they reminded everyone of a young girl named Alexis, who’s fight with a brain tumor caused an insatiable appetite and uncontrollable weight gain. When Alexis was born, she was a normal little girl until she was 9-years-old and a mass was found in her brain and surgery was the only way they could remove it. They operated on Alexis’ brain, but Alexis still believed she was constantly starving. She’s gained about 150 pounds in two years, and so her parents decided to have her undergo bariatric surgery.
