On Friday, her mother, Daniella Galvez, informed 3TV that her daughter could soon get help.
“There is a neurosurgeon that has agreed to see Carissa and evaluate her at least on Monday,” said Daniella.
Carissa was moved from Phoenix to a hospital in Tucson on Friday morning.
Her mother is hoping a neurosurgeon will remove her daughter’s failed experimental shunt in her brain, which is used to drain fluid.
Carissa has a rare genetic mutation affecting her cerebral spinal fluid.
