In July, she was diagnosed with malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT), a rare and aggressive tumor that occurs in infancy or childhood. 

A few weeks later, doctors found an additional tumor in her brain, and she was diagnosed with atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT), a rare and fast-growing cancerous tumor of the brain and spinal cord, according to St. Jude’s Research Hospital. 

Eliza underwent brain surgery to have the tumor and affected brain tissue removed before starting aggressive chemotherapy at the end of July.
