The Moody family received the best Christmas present they could have asked for…the news that three year old Hannah is now on the road to recovery.

After being diagnosed with a rare kind of tumor in September, she has had several treatments of chemotherapy and undergone surgery to remove her kidney.

Connie Moody, Hannah’s mother says recently on the 26th, they did an evaluation and a Cat-scan and there is no abdominal cancer and her lungs have improved 95%.

Hannah’s parents say although the odds are against them, they are confident she will be a survivor. Her mother says, “ 6 out of 10 children get this type of cancer back and they’re giving her a 40% chance of survival for five years. But I think she’s doing well and with this last evaluation, she’s going to make it.”

Hannah has a lot of energy and says she loves painting and riding her new bike.
