A young woman from Aurora wants to spread awareness about childhood cancer.
Angie Hochevar is just settling into a normal life again, which includes school at Mesabi Range in Virginia.
She was diagnosed at 19 with a rare soft tissue childhood cancer in her left arm.
She was treated in Duluth. Ten chemo treatments and one round of radiation powered through that cancer.
Angie told us she made it through with the help of her family and pediatric oncology social worker. Now she's got a message for other young people facing cancer.
"Keep your head up. You never know when your time is up. Take each day as it comes. Enjoy it."
She said she wants to become a pediatric oncology social worker, because the one who helped her was so amazing.
