Default 9month old daughter has lymphagioma

I can share the same sentiment with everyone else.....I too was shocked to see our daughter who was born healthy and normal at birth, get a large mass on her left neck after picking her up at day care...It was a surprise to us...I believe weeks prior to the mass, she contracted RSV from day care and was very very sick...this may have triggered an infection thus the LM mass......

We live in Las Vegas and willing to get a second opinion on her condition. We want the best treatment for her. We spoke to Dr. Levintin who was very helpful.

Just curious about the article below. Please tell me more about Dr. Shiels. Can he cure what my daughter has??? I heard that LM is not cureable but manageable and controllable IF we time it right.....Can my daughter live a normal life??
