This story is about a young girl from Atlanta who got cancer twice. 24-year-old Montana Brown, who has been diagnosed with a rare form of connective tissue cancer twice in her life, can best tell about the danger of the most terrible disease
The tumor disease struck Brown when he was only 2 years old. Chemotherapy at a cancer center in Atlanta followed, which worked and the girl went into remission.
The following years for Montana pass like any other child - in games and carefree. However, at the age of 15, cancer shook her life.
The teenager comes in for another chemotherapy treatment at the cancer center and this time the news is wonderful - she is on the mend. However, she is extremely grateful for the care they provide for her and it inspires her to become a nurse.
"The sisters were extremely loving, caring and compassionate. The love they gave to me and my family during difficult times really helped me. It also helped me to want to become as loving, caring and compassionate as they were with me," shares Brown.
Having beaten cancer twice, Montana is now on the other side of the disease, caring for patients as a nurse at the same hospital. She believes that her long battle with cancer can help her to create a special empathetic connection with children fighting the disease, becoming a source of hope and inspiration for them.
