SAN ANTONIO – Tiny, see-through fish might be the key to treating children with the rare muscle cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma.
Local 13-year-old Kennedie Bailey, who just beat that cancer, saw the little zebrafish that may lead to a new treatment for other kids and prevent tumors from returning.
It was Mother's Day 2017 when Kennedie's mom Lindsey found a big bump underneath her right ear.
"It started with an ear infection," Kennedie said.
She had developed a rare muscle cancer they'd never heard of.
"I couldn't even pronounce it," Kennedie said.
It was Kennedie's upbeat attitude that got her through a tough year of treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma.
