Rosecrans graduate Allie Berry is experiencing the goodness of the world during unexpected cancer battle.
ZANESVILLE — Allie Berry has an inquisitive nature.
One of her questions has been answered in an unusual way.
The 19-year-old was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer that forms in soft tissue, two months ago. The softball-sized tumor was found in her abdominal wall and had wrapped itself around the pancreas and liver.
The cancer, which is only one percent of all cancer diagnoses, is usually found near the eyes or ovaries or in bone marrow.
Her father, Bill, recalled doctors referring to his daughter as a unicorn due to her unique case, and her case will likely become a test study.
“I was doubting if there was any good left in the world, but I believe this is the reason this happened,” Allie said about her cancer battle. “God has shown me there is still plenty of good in the world.”
