Getting a cancer diagnosis is never easy but it’s not a death sentence. Effective therapies are saving lives every single day and a young woman named Montana Brown is proof.
Montana was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of childhood cancer when she was only 2 years old. With the support of her family and the excellent medical team at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, she beat the disease after being treated for a year.
Montana Brown was less than 2 years old when she was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of childhood cancer.
Years later, she enjoyed high school and dreamed of going to college to become a nurse. At 15 years old, she was devastated to find out her cancer relapsed. Again, she went through a year of radiation and chemotherapy and later received a clean bill of health from her doctors. She beat cancer a second time and looked forward to getting on with her life.
Today, at 24 years old she is now realizing her dreams of being a nurse. In fact, she is not only a nurse but will be returning to the same hospital where she was treated as a child and as a teenager.
She battled cancer again at 15 years old and beat it a second time. At 24, she is now realizing her dreams of being a nurse.
Montana Brown couldn’t be happier and thankful to God and everyone in her life for helping her fulfill her dreams.
Just like these construction workers sending a get well message to a toddler fighting cancer, support from friends and family is everything. Life is a roller coaster and has its shares of up and downs; however, focusing on our dreams and dealing with whatever presents itself is exactly what Montana Brown did. Way to go!
