Just before Labor Day, an Adamsville mother got a big scare: she was told her daughter had cancer. Three-year-old Hannah Moody had a fever and was vomiting when her mother took her to the doctor. After further examinations in Zanesville, Dr. Taberio sent Hannah to Children’s Hospital in Columbus. There she was diagnosed with Wilm’s tumor. Connie Moody, Hannah’s mother, said this type of cancer has no symptoms, so if the doctor wouldn’t have found it, it may have been too late. The family will be commuting from Newark this week as Hannah continues her radiation treatment, followed by six months of chemotherapy. Connie says Hannah has an 80% to 90% survival rate. The family has not experienced much economic strain yet, thanks to donations from area churches and help from family and friends.
