Marichu Rosales Brun
When Marichu Rosales Brun, 17, began experiencing numbness in her upper right thigh almost two years ago, the teenager knew something was wrong. After visits to doctors near in her home of Colima, Mexico, they family learned Marichu had a thoracic spinal mass that threatened her mobility. On Sept. 2016, Dr. Watridge and Dr. Quiñones-Hinojosa performed surgery to remove the tumor. Her energy and positive attitude of living and giving to others is truly incredible and inspirational.
