Former Kansas City linebacker Alex Smith shared an important health update about his daughter, Sloane, via his Instagram on June 25.
Smith wrote: “On May 10, Sloane was brought to the emergency room with stroke-like symptoms. “She had an MRI scan and the doctors quickly informed us that she had a large brain tumor and needed urgent craniotomy.
“The 10 hour procedure was the most painful time of our lives. A watch has never moved so slowly. The incredible neurosurgeons @stanfordchildrens did a miracle job and were able to remove 100% of the tumour.”
The good news is that Sloane is recovering very well after the surgery.
“All we know is what matters most — and that is SLOANE,” Smith continued. “She healed after the surgery. Back to her bubbly self. Sing, dance, laugh and feel good. “
