Anya Ottley is a 6-year-old who suffers from a rare form of kidney cancer known as Wilms’ tumor. But this little fighter is trying not to let her cancer hold her back from anything. It’s no wonder that a video where this brave cancer patient sings Fight Song went viral!
Her mother says, “She even takes the chemotherapy in her stride. It makes her sick but she tells me it’s not too bad for her and that other children on the ward are much sicker. She is really caring like that.”
To boost Anya’s spirits while she prepares to undergo multiple rounds of chemotherapy, her mother told her that at the end of her treatments, Anya would have a ‘ring-the-bell’ party to celebrate that she was better. Anya was so excited at the promise of a party and decided that she wanted to sing ‘Fight Song’ at the party.
When she attended a wedding recently, Anya just knew that would be the perfect time to practice the song in front of an audience.
Her uncle captured the entire beautiful moment on camera, and it’s absolutely inspiring to see. This sweet, brave little girl is belting her heart out, and it’s giving me all the feels.
