Ohio girl, 7, with brain tumor completes her dream of & # 39; conscription & # 39; at the navy in fake ceremony before starting 15 months of chemo
- Tabitha Nye, seven, from Perry, Ohio, was diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago
- It was declared unusable at the time, so doctors chose to check it with scans
- An MRI in January showed that it was growing and Tabitha started this week with a 15-month chemotherapy regimen
- Her mother says that her daughter has dreamed of joining the Navy since she was three years old
- The Cleveland Heights recruitment agency held a false service for Tabitha last month
A seven-year-old girl with a brain tumor had made her wish come true and & # 39; service & # 39; taken in the navy before she started chemotherapy.
Tabitha Nye, from Perry, Ohio, was diagnosed with brain cancer when she was five years old after doctors found a mass wrapped around her brainstem.
Recent scans have shown that the tumor is growing and that she needs to undergo weekly chemotherapy sessions in the coming 15 months.
So last month the navy recruitment office in Cleveland Heights held a fake employment for Tabitha, the Military times.

& # 39; (Tabitha & # 39; s) dream from the age of three was to join the Navy, & # 39; told her mother, Melinda, at the Military Times.
& # 39; (She) goes to the Cleveland Air Show every year. It comes on her birthday weekend (she thought) they are only coming for her birthday. & # 39;
Tabitha also comes from a family of the armed forces. Melinda served as a marine hospital member. It is not clear how many years she served.
According to CaringBridge, Melinda first noticed that there was something wrong with Tabitha when she was five and had trouble seeing the whiteboard at school.
A visit to the eye doctor showed that there was swelling behind Tabitha's eyes and she was sent to the hospital for scans.
An MRI revealed a tumor on and around the brainstem, but due to its location, it could not be biopsied. So doctors monitor it with scans every three months.
It is unclear what kind of tumor she has, but it is & # 39; very low grade & # 39; and & # 39; growing very slowly & # 39 ;, according to a message on CaringBridge.
Tabitha was operated on to remove the extra fluid and pressure in her brain after she went into physical and occupational therapy.
An MRI in January showed that the tumor was growing and Tabitha was being operated on, with doctors removing between 25 and 30 percent of the tumor. Pictured: Tabitha gets a gateway for chemotherapy

An MRI in January 2019 revealed that the tumor was growing and that Tabitha had to start treatment.
During surgery in February, doctors removed between 25 and 30 percent of the tumor and this week began weekly intravenous chemotherapy at the Cleveland Clinic that will last 15 months.
The Nyes started with a GoFundMe page to cover the costs of Tabitha's medical bills.
Starting Wednesday afternoon, more than $ 1,100 was collected from a first $ 1,000 goal.
