Voices Against Brain Cancer Commends Young Brain Tumor Patient for her Appearance on Popular Trivia Game Show
Date:5/11/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2013

On May 11, Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, commends Taylor Roth on her recent appearance on Jeopardy, a popular trivia game television show, despite suffering from an inoperable brain tumor.

According to Dallas News, Taylor Roth has lived with an inoperable brain tumor for the past two years. When it was first discovered, she had trouble walking and wasn’t sure if she’d be able to make it another year.

However, two years later, the 21-year-old Baylor University student has not let the tumor hinder her career plans. She recently appeared on the popular trivia game show, Jeopardy as a contestant, representing her school in the College Championship.

Dr. Elizabeth Maher, a UT Southwestern neuro-oncologist who has monitored Roth’s tumor for two years gave Dallas News insight on Taylor’s attitude towards her unfortunate situation. “She just says, ‘I’m going to do this.' I think sometimes: Where did this child come from? She really is very inspiring.”

Roth first decided to go to the doctor when she experienced trouble walking to her classes during her freshman year at Baylor. She was sent to a neurologist for an MRI where she found out she had a tumor on her brain stem. Dr. Maher found that Roth’s tumor was “a low-grade glioma, a slow-growing tumor that people can live with for decades. It was not the fast-growing, deadly kind that Roth and physicians believed she had, and doctors continue to monitor its growth.”
