Sammy Mederos’s beaming smile and long, thick, curly blond hair are the very picture of health.
To look at her, you'd never guess she is a leukemia survivor.
But it wasn't that long ago the now 9-year-old was severely ill from chemotherapy treatments.
She was diagnosed in 2009, while in kindergarten at Cape Horn-Skye Elementary. It was a long road to recovery, but Sammy is now in remission.
