9-year-old fighting cancer to undergo leg amputation

Walbridge, OH (Toledo News Now) - It's been a long fight with cancer for 9-year-old Valory Newton, and now her family says they have received the news they hoped would never come.

In an effort to keep the cancer from spreading, the young dancer will have to undergo a leg amputation. Her family knew losing her leg was a possibility, but that does not make the news any less painful.

Doctors say the only way to make sure her cancer does not spread is by removing it.

Valory is scheduled for two months of chemotherapy, then the amputation, followed by more chemotherapy. Her mother says they can do this with support from the community.

The family does have a GoFundMe page set up for Valory if you would like to donate.
