2-year-old girl disappears in woods – two days later, pitbull approaches mom with message







Time and time again, dogs prove themselves the most valuable of companions to humans.

Any doubters of that need look no further than Penny the pitbull, who recently stayed by a missing toddler’s side for two whole days before she was found.

In an act of instinctual love, the dog refused to abandon two-year-old Charlee Campbell when she wandered off into the woods. Campbell’s family are now hailing Penny a heroAccording to reports, Charlee Campbell disappeared when she wandered into the woods in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky, prompting a 48 hour search by authorities.

The little girl’s family were left to fret as two days past before she was found, though in the midst of despair an unlikely hero emerged.

Enter Penny the pitbull, the dog who’s now being hailed as a hero after keeping watch over Charlee while she was lost.

Speaking to WIS-TV, Charlee’s grandmother said: “This is our hero right here. When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here.

“I can’t even explain how happy I am that this baby is home, because I love her more than anything in this world.”

As per the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, the dog arrived home moments before Charlee was discovered by local resident Wayne Brown.

“Charlee’s amazing survival story continued tonight when she walked up on a porch on Roy Layne Road this evening,” read the update on the Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page.

“The homeowners realised who she was and contacted authorities. Ironically, her dog returned home on its own a few minutes prior to Charlee approaching the homeowners.”

Brown, the resident who found Charlee, said: “I saw the dirt all over her, and she had leaves in her hair, and I opened the door, and I said, ‘Are you Charlee?’.

“And she handed me this bottle. And I said, ‘Are you Charlee?’. She didn’t answer me. She wouldn’t say anything.”Charlee was taken to hospital shortly after her reappearance, where she was checked for injuries. Fortunately, aside from being dehydrated and suffering from tick bites, she appears to be no worse for wear after her two day stint in the woods.

An investigation is set to take place into her disappearance, with Child Protective Services now involved.

Other Infos About Cancer of this kind…
Mesothelioma Cancer
Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive form of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart. Caused by asbestos, mesothelioma has no known cure and has a very poor prognosis.

According to a 2017 report by the Centers for Disease Control, 2,400 – 2,800 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States each year. People who have worked with or been exposed to asbestos have the highest risk of developing mesothelioma. After being exposed to asbestos, mesothelioma symptoms can take 20 – 50 years to appear.

The life expectancy for mesothelioma patients is poor, as there is no cure for the disease. The stage of the disease, cell type, and location of the tumor(s) are the most important factors for a patient’s survival. Factors such as the patient’s overall health, age, and whether the cancer has spread also impact prognosis.

After receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis, there are a number of vital decisions that must be made. The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is dedicated to providing patients with the best resources available on current treatment, stories of survival and hope, and financial assistance.
Types of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is most commonly classified by the location in the body where it develops. Specifically, the cancer forms in the lining of certain organs or spaces within the body, known as the mesothelium. Mesothelioma typically develops in one of three specific areas.
Diagnosing Mesothelioma Symptoms
Mesothelioma symptoms can take 20 – 50 years to appear after the first exposure to asbestos. The signs of mesothelioma often look like those of other diseases, which can lead to misdiagnosis. When someone exhibits mesothelioma symptoms, doctors perform a variety of tests to rule out other diseases. It normally takes weeks or months for doctors to arrive at an accurate mesothelioma diagnosis.
Upon diagnosis, the doctor will categorize the disease into one of four stages. While there are several staging systems, the TNM System — which stands for tumor, lymph nodes, and metastasis — is the most commonly used.

Types of Mesothelioma

Pleural Mesothelioma
LUNGS
The most common type, pleural mesothelioma is caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers.

MORE
Peritoneal Mesothelioma
ABDOMEN
Inhaled or swallowed asbestos fibers can become trapped in the lining of the abdomen (the peritoneum).

Pericardial Mesothelioma
HEART
In rare cases, asbestos fibers can get lodged in the pericardium, the lining around the heart cavity.

Diagnosing Mesothelioma Symptoms
Mesothelioma symptoms can take 20 – 50 years to appear after the first exposure to asbestos. The signs of mesothelioma often look like those of other diseases, which can lead to misdiagnosis. When someone exhibits mesothelioma symptoms, doctors perform a variety of tests to rule out other diseases. It normally takes weeks or months for doctors to arrive at an accurate mesothelioma diagnosis.

Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Trouble breathing or chest pain.
Effusion (fluid buildup) in the lungs or abdomen.
Anemia (especially in women).
Nausea / vomiting.
Loss of weight.
Upon diagnosis, the doctor will categorize the disease into one of four stages. While there are several staging systems, the TNM System — which stands for tumor, lymph nodes, and metastasis — is the most commonly used.

Four Stages of Mesothelioma
STAGE
1
The mesothelioma tumor is located in only one area and has not spread to other parts of the body.

STAGE
2
A large tumor may have progressed to nearby areas and/or the lymph nodes, but has not gone on any further.

STAGE
3
Tumors have typically spread beyond the local area to several nearby locations and the lymph nodes.

STAGE
4
The tumors have spread into multiple areas and throughout the lymphatic system, invading other organs throughout the body.

Typically, Stage 1 and Stage 2 mesothelioma can be treated effectively with surgery and other forms of therapy. However, Stage 3 and Stage 4 mesothelioma are often treated palliatively.

Treating Mesothelioma
Treatment for mesothelioma is similar to other types of cancer. The most common treatments are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Newer treatments are being studied as part of clinical trials and may be available for some patients who do not respond to conventional therapies.

In some cases, treatment can improve a patient’s prognosis, extending his/her life significantly. Treatment can also be used palliatively to reduce pain and discomfort caused by the symptoms of mesothelioma.
