Doctors give 90 percent chance of curing Artest's daughter
Artest says doctors have told him they have a 90 percent chance of curing his 4-year-old daughter, Diamond.
Doctors normally would remove the cancerous kidney. But Diamond was born with just one kidney, so she will have to undergo chemotherapy to shrink the tumor before doctors decide whether to remove it surgically.
The girl lives with Artest's wife, Kimsha, in Indiana, and is receiving treatment there. Doctors discovered the cancer after Diamond complained of stomach pains.
