Doctors: Growth on baby's neck shrinking

Doctors at Columbus Children's hospital say a growth on an Iraqi baby's neck has shrunk about ten percent and that doctors will start more aggressive treatment to get better results. Nine-month-old Fatemah Hassan arrived in Columbus about three weeks ago after a Marietta doctor serving in Iraq arranged for her medical care. Doctor Gayle Gordillo says they'll use a chemotherapy-like treatment to reduce a mass of blood vessels on her neck that was large enough to cause breathing problems. Fatemah was blue from a lack of oxygen when her parents brought her to a US military base on the Iran-Iraq border. She was treated at three hospitals in Iraq before being brought to Columbus in mid-May. Lieutenant Colonel Todd Fredericks helped set up the treatment at no cost.
