Baldwinsville Girl With Rare Bone Cancer Appears on ‘The View’
11 year-old Alexa Bolton is suffering from a bone cancer so rare she's appearing on 'The View' this morning to talk about her diagnosis and receive a special surprise.
The Baldwinsville girl was diagnosed with stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma last October after complaining of back pain. The doctor discovered a tumor on her spine which spread to her chest bone.
Alexa will have to undergo 17 rounds of chemotherapy and a 10 day radiation cycle.
'The View' co-host Raven-Symone made a surprise visit, bringing John from 'Anything Can Be Project.' "I take dreams of kids who are fighting cancer and make them come true through photographer," he explained to Alexa.
Tune in to The View at 11am to see Alexa's story and results from the 'Anything Can Be Project.'
