Navajo teen survives battle with brain tumor

A 13-year-old Navajo boy from Arizona is undergoing monthly chemotherapy treatments after having a tumor removed from his brain.

Travis Yazzie went to the hospital three times before the tumor was diagnosed. At one point, doctors thought his condition was psychological.

But after the tumor was finally located, Yazzie underwent surgery to have it removed. He spent six weeks in radiation treatment and now goes to Phoenix every month for chemotherapy.
