A FATHER AND HIS STEPSON, BOTH WITH BRAIN TUMORS, TURN TO
THE MEDICAL TEAM FOR HELP, ON ABC�S �MIRACLE WORKERS�
�Gibbs� � A father and his stepson, both stricken with brain tumors, turn to the medical team for help, on �Miracle Workers,� MONDAY, MARCH 27 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Thirty-five-year-old Bob Gibbs and his family live in Clearwater, FL, where they led an active life � until Bob was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was affecting his vision. Unable to work due to vision problems, his wife struggled to work double-time to support the family. The family was hit with another setback when stepson Chris, the eldest and an avid motocross racer, had an accident through which they discovered that he, too, had a brain tumor.
The worry and stress of two brain tumors in one family is taking its toll on the Gibbs family. �Miracle Workers� has advanced technology and the best doctors for brain surgery, but these are still risky solutions for Bob and Chris. Still, the surgeries are their only hope at a chance at getting back to a healthy and active life.
The doctors working on the Gibbs case are Linda M. Liau, M.D., Ph.D., and Dr. John Frazee, M.D. of the UCLA Division of Neurosurgery.
The regular �Miracle Workers� dream team includes lead doctors Redmond Burke, a pioneering cardiac surgeon who performed New England�s first heart lung transplant on a child; Billy Cohn, a cardiovascular surgeon who has been called the �Thomas Edison� of heart surgery for his impressive list of inventions that have changed surgery techniques; UCLA Medical Center nurse Janna Bullock and McLennan Community Recovery RN Tamara Houston.
�Miracle Workers� is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
