ALEXANDER, Ark. (KTHV) - "She's my baby. She's my whole world," Morgan Styles said as she fights back tears. As a mother, she instinctively feels her child's pain, as only a mother can. Styles continued, "The doctor that I talked to had pretty much made me think it was hopeless."
It all started when Styles noticed her six-year old acting a little out of the ordinary. She explained, "I started getting a little frustrated. I was like Maylea, stop, stop. You know she would fall. The way she was doing it, it almost looked like she was faking it."
The family would soon realize, that was far from the truth. After a visit to the pediatrician, Maylea was immediately rushed to Arkansas Children's Hospital. "They told me that she had it. That she had a tumor on her brain stem," said Styles.
