Over two decades ago, a 2-year-old girl in Georgia named Montana Brown was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer in her connective tissue called rhabdomyosarcoma. (Pronounced rab-doe-my-oh-sar-CO-ma.)
She went through a year of chemo at a hospital in Atlanta, and beat it. Then at 15 years old, she was diagnosed with cancer AGAIN . . . had to do more chemo and radiation . . . and beat it a SECOND time.
Now she’s 24 years old, and cancer-free. And check out what she’s up to . . .
She says the nurses were always great to her when she was in and out of the hospital. So even when she was young, she knew that was what she wanted to do.
So she recently finished nursing school, and focused on pediatric oncology. In other words, she wanted to work with OTHER kids who were fighting cancer.
And last week, she started working at the SAME HOSPITAL where she had her cancer treatments.
She wanted to work with kids because she can honestly say she knows what they’re going through. And when they see that SHE beat cancer, hopefully it inspires them to keep fighting.
