Cincinnati doctors are baffled. But parents Carissa and Matt Hatfiled believe it must have been some kind of divine intervention.

Carissa always noticed that her daughter Paisley’s face drooped on the left side. Then there was her eye, which would never close all the way. “We noticed her eye — when she would cry, her eye would not shut all the way,” Carissa said. “It would stay open, and when she started to smile, the same side of her mouth would not move.”

Finally, they took Paisley to the doctor. The results were grave. It looked like she was going to die when the doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital found a malignant tumor near the base of her brain.

Paisley went in for a biopsy, and then the unexpected happened.

“As soon as he [the doctor] came in, he sat down, he was just shaking his head,” Carissa said. “He said, ‘Your prayers must have worked, because when I went in to get that biopsy,’ he said, ‘nothing was there.'”

Like when Pope Francis kissed Gianna Masciantonio’s head, the malignant tumor disappeared. Paisley is doing just fine. The doctors were so stunned, they even released a statement:

“Doctors at Children’s had expected the worst  a malignant tumor. But when surgeons reached the spot where the suspected tumor was visible on the scan, they found nothing. They couldn’t have been happier to tell the good news to the Hatfield family.”

“A man of God like I am, just looking for some explanation, but it’s a true miracle, it’s a true healing,” said Paisley’s dad, Matt.
