Ohio County Teen Inspires Many Amid Courageous Cancer Fight
In January of 2020, Alivia Faith Burgess was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma brain cancer, but it hasn't stopped her from encouraging others. She just turned 16 years old and attends Ohio County High School. She's a model of courage and resilience amid her cancer fight.
It's easy to see why the Beaver Dam/Hartford community has been rallying so hard for this family. Alivia Faith is a very special young lady. When I talked with her after her diagnosis in January of 2020, she promised me that she was going to fight hard. She said, "God's Got This." He does indeed. I told her that I was proud of her, that she's an inspiration not only to me but to so many others. I also assured her that we'd all be by her side every step of the way on that January day. Everyone in the community has been following her journey and praying for her recovery.
Alivia has shown such courage, heroism, and grace through her medical journey to date. She's been inspirational indeed with that big, beautiful smile, but she's tired. So very tired. It's been a very tough couple of years with many highs and lows. She's still keeping her promise to fight hard. We all need her to know that she isn't alone.
On January 29th, 2022, her mom shared this medical update.
