8-Year Old Battling Breast Cancer, After Parents Suffer From Similar Ailment

0
An eight-year-old girl has been diagnosed with breast
cancer, in what is thought to be the youngest case ever of the disease. Chrissy
Turner, from Utah, discovered a lump on her chest last month.
‘It was about the middle of October she came to us with a
lump on her chest and was scared,’ her father Troy told ABC4 Utah News. To her
parents’ horror, tests revealed she was suffering from a very rare form of
breast cancer called secretory carcinoma.
This type of the disease affects just one in a million
people diagnosed with the disease – and Chrissy will now need to undergo a
mastectomy.

‘I was scared the first time I knew about it,’ she said.
‘But I knew I could fight it off and I hope that I can fight it off.
Both of her parents have suffered from cancer previously and
to add to the nightmare, her father’s cancer has shown up again.
‘We’re just going to keep fighting,’ her mother said. ‘Doing
everything we can to smile every day and laugh every day and carry our head
high and do our best to overcome this.’
