PAULDING – Following almost a month of treatments in Texas, a 4-year-old girl with an inoperable brain tumor has returned home to Paulding.

Lilly Dearing was diagnosed with Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (inoperable brain tumor) in January. Fund-raisers were held for Lilly to travel to the famed Burzynski Clinic in Houston. She and her parents, Mandy Briner and Todd Dearing, arrived in Texas and the preschooler received her first treatment on Feb. 14.
