Springfield baby born with massive tumor dies

Posted: Updated: Sep 27, 2013 08:51 PM

A Springfield infant born in May with a massive tumor on her face has passed away.

According to a report by The Tennessean, Vanderbilt University Medical Center confirmed Miley Buchanan died at the hospital early Friday morning.

Miley was born to Chelsea Buchanan and Russell Bibee on May 13.

The couple learned of Miley's mass during an ultrasound when Chelsea was just three months pregnant.

In early August, doctors said the tumor was continuing to grow and into Miley's ear, throat and mouth, as well as extending to her shoulder and back.

The family has set up a fund at Regions Bank to help cover Miley's medical costs. The family now hopes to raise money to pay for her tombstone.

Anyone wishing to give to the Miley Buchanan Benefit Account can do so at any Regions Bank branch.
