MESA, Ariz. (FOX 10) - Just one week before her ninth birthday, doctors diagnosed Allie Hansen with leukemia.
"I just don't know what to do because it was a whole new thing for me," she said. "It was like I was restarting my life."
Now, two years later, Allie and her family drive in one last time from Page so the 11-year-old can receive her last cancer treatment.
"She's had chemotherapy everywhere you can think of," said Brittany Hansen, Allie's mother. "She has an implanted port, she gets chemo in her spinal fluid lumbar puncture with shots in her legs and shots in the back of her arms, then oral chemo every single day."
At times, the journey seemed hopeless and neverending.
"With cancer, we don't know. Every day is a new day and it brings new challenges," Brittany said. We have had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. There were some days where I didn't know that we would get to this day."
But after 884 days, today brings new hope.
"To finally be here at the end is super exciting and we're all just thrilled and excited for Allie," said CJ Hansen, Allie's father. "She's done so well with it and we're hopeful that she can start to do all the things that a normal 11-year-old should do."
Because today, little Allie Hansen is cancer free.
"I feel awesome! I'm just so happy to be done," Allie said.
