The sound of a bell, a much anticipated, long awaited moment for a young girl fighting a rare form of cancer.

This month she finished up her yearlong treatment.

A long road to recovery, but always in good spirits.

Just like the echoes of that ring, 9-year-old Daisy Anguiano's spirit has left an echo with those at Nebraska Medicine.

September of last year, doctors diagnosed daisy with a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma.

Daisy's medical team told her she would need to undergo radiation and chemotherapy to fight the cancer.

It's been a year of fighting. Her birthday was in the hospital.

Instead of going to school, she'd be here in the hospital.

But that didn't get Daisy down.

Despite feeling tired from meds, exhausted from hospitalizations she always has a smile on her face.

For this sunny girl, a bright outlook.

 Daisy had her last chemo treatment this Monday.

She rang the gong four times.

Daisy's story, uplifting as it is, has been a year long process. Something doctors hope people will think about this month especially.

But take it from Daisy, regardless of that sad reality most important she says is to be happy.

"You should stay positive if they have cancer or not potato potato,’ she said.
