A 3-year-old named Aleisha Hunter from Toronto, Canada, has become the youngest person to ever be diagnosed with the disease. After undergoing a mastectomy, Hunter is in the clear and has a surprisingly mature perspective of what happened to her, according to the UK's Daily Mail
"I know I had cancer...and that the doctors made it better," Hunter told the news source. "I know that cancer can make some people go to heaven, but I am better now," she said.
Aleisha's mother, Melanie, found a small lump on her daughter's breast while drying her off from a bath, but she did not expect that her daughter could be suffering from the disease.
Aleisha underwent a mastectomy and had 16 lymph nodes removed to prevent the cancer from spreading. Fortunately for her, the cancer did not spread and she did not have to undergo painful chemotherapy or radiation treatment. She is now happy and healthy and her family is counting their blessings.
According to BreastCancer.org, there are over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors currently living in the United States.
