Neurosurgeon Charles Teo answers family’s prayers as the only doctor to operate on cancer victim Ciara Nelson

MARCH 19, 201810:57pm

A YOUNG Australian teenager who was left for dead due to an ‘inoperable’ brain tumour has defied doctor’s predictions, surviving a surgery only one surgeon was brave enough to perform.

Ciara Nelson, 18, is recovering at her Melbourne home after having a lifesaving operation thanks to Sydney neurosurgeon Charles Teo, who reportedly said it was the “most difficult surgery” he had ever performed.

Ciara’s mother, Colleen Nelson, claimed Dr Teo removed 100 per cent of the deadly tumour in a “gamble” that saw her daughter undergo five hour keyhole surgery.
