MONROE, NC (WBTV) - Quick update:
has hair! Hailey was bald and beautiful when I first wrote about her last September. She survived sunovial cell sarcoma, a soft tissue tumor in her elbow.
Chemo + Radiation + Surgery = Hailey winning.
Today we celebrate Hailey for something different - she just graduated from 8th grade at Fellowship Christian School in Monroe. Her mom, Teresa, says she knows it's not as big of a deal as high school graduation but it still means a lot to her family. Last year at this time Teresa didn't think she'd see this day.
Hailey will start high school this fall on a fast track of science and math. She says she wants to become a pediatric oncology nurse.
I'll just let that talk-about-coming-full-circle-thought hang out here for a bit…
