Some of you may know Junior Carly Allphin but some of you might not know her whole story.  

“I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer. I was diagnosed in April of 2016 when I was 14 years old,” Allphin said.

Allphin had 9 tumors up and down her spine and in her hips and pelvis.

“Basically I was really close to paralyzation because I had one really large softball size tumor pushing on the nerves in my legs,” Allphin said.

Allphin did 14 rounds of chemo, 72 radiation treatments, and immunotherapy throughout her entire battle plus 8 months after.

“I have been in remission now since May of 2017 and I finished treatment August of 2017,” Allphin said.
