LOS ANGELES -- Three years ago, doctors found a cancerous tumor the size of a grapefruit on a boy's brain.

Now, they say 11-year-old David Dingman-Grover has a clean bill of health.

The tumor, nicknamed "Frank," after the monster Frankenstein, was removed a year ago.

David's mother helped defray medical costs by auctioning "Frank Must Die" bumper stickers on the Internet.

The surgeon who removed the mass said biopsies and MRI scans show that the boy's brain is now cancer-free.

He'll be monitored for five years.

Doctors said the treatments caused some side effects, including damage to the pituitary gland. But David said he feels great and showed off karate kicks for reporters
