Baby with brain tumour miraculously recovers after Pope Francis kissed her

When Pope Francis kissed baby Gianna Masciantonio in 2015 , some saw it as an encouraging sign .
The then one – year – old had been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Doctors had not expected that she would make it to her first birthday , but she overcame the odds — and days after her birthday , Pope Francis kissed her head , Yahoo News quotes CBS Philadelphia as having reported .

It was reported that Gianna had histiocytosis , a rare condition that made it impossible for her to have surgery to remove the tumour .

The blood disorder caused lesions on her brain stem , reports said .

Gianna was treated with chemotherapy , and CBS Philadelphia reports that now , Gianna is in good health and will begin pre – school this year .

To commemorate Gianna ’ s recovery , her parents , Joey and Kristen Masciantonio , donated $ 50 , 000 to the Children ’ s Hospital of Philadelphia, where Gianna was treated .

They made the donation in the name of the foundation they started , For the Love of Grace .

Grace is Gianna ’ s middle name , and the foundation is dedicated to helping children with brain tumours and histiocytosis .
