BUFFALO, NY- Kim Vaillancourt, the Town of Tonawanda mother of 6 battling brain cancer, has received more good news from doctors.
The Vaillancourt family tells 2 On Your Side's Melissa Holmes that the results of her CT scan this week showed that while the brain tumors are still there, there is no new growth.
Kim was diagnosed in December 2015 with Glioblastoma just days after adopting three children. She and her husband Phil had two children of their own and were expecting a third at the time. She put off treatment to protect her unborn son.
The family says the kids are doing great, and looking forward to starting school, and baby Wyatt is hitting all his milestones.
The Vaillancourts thank everyone for their constant thoughts, prayers and well wishes and just asks for continued prayers.
Here is the full statement from the family:
