Young Chrissy from Utah has recently been diagnosed with secretory breast carcinoma, at just eight years old.
Chrissy’s mother, Annette Turner, told ABC News that it was Chrissy who first found the tumour.
“She came to us on a Sunday afternoon, she said, ‘Mummy I have been scared and I have this lump,'” Turner recalled “It had been there for a while.”
So, “I was in shock,” Chrissy’s mother explained. “No child should ever have to go through cancer,” she added.
“My heart and thoughts are on my daughter and having her get better.”
“I was kind of scared to kind of figure out what it was,” Chrissy said.
“It is very treatable,” said Chrissy’s physician Dr. Brian Bucher, at Primary Children’s Hospital. “Chrissy will need to undergo a simple mastectomy…to remove all the remaining breast tissue to prevent this cancer from coming back.”
We wish Chrissy all the best.
