TV's WGRZ Channel 2 reports....

She has always lived a life of tremendous activity.

Now, Meghan Redenbach is fighting to get back to that.

Just 13 years old, Meghan was diagnosed in December with fibrosarcoma, a form of ovarian cancer so rare it has seen only 30 documented cases in the United States. This is only the second time it has been diagnosed in a child.

She is undergoing chemotherapy every three weeks for the next nine months, and she can only occasionally attend classes at Roy-Hart Middle School. But what has stung Meghan more than anything is not being able to play the sports she has always enjoyed: softball, volleyball and, this season, basketball.

Amidst all of that, her perseverance and positivity have led the way to -- thus far -- a strong recovery. This Sunday, a benefit will be held in her honor at Terry's Corner Fire Hall in Gasport; it will feature a Chinese auction and go from 1-4 pm.
