(Scroll down for video) An adorable young girl spoke about her fears of learning that she has breast cancer.
8-year-old Chrissy Turner of Utah, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Doctors believe that she is the youngest child to have breast cancer. Turner discovered a lump in her breast last month.
After a series of tests, Doctors found that she is suffering from a rare form of breast cancer called secretory carcinoma.
Sadly, Chrissy’s family members have been through struggles with cancer before. Her father, Troy Turner, an Army veteran, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma when Chrissy was a baby.
Her mother Annette, a personal trainer and holistic life coach, battled cervical cancer, and is now a survivor. “I was scared the first time I heard of it, but I know I could fight it and I hope I can fight,” Chrissy said.
