From cancer to remission, a young Brewer girl's battle

BREWER, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- Cancer doesn't just affect adults, unfortunately many times it plagues children as well. A seven year old Brewer girl named Wynter was one of those children. In February, Wynter was diagnosed with an agressive form of Leukemia that left her paralyzed from the waist down. Now after seven months, she's finally in remission.

Next month, Wynter and her mother will travel to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston where Wynter will receive a bone marrow transplant. It will mean she'll have to stay in Boston for six months after the surgery to recover and receive further treatment, but it's hoped the transplant will keep her from being at risk of a relapse in the future.
