LDS Teen Battling Cancer: "So Many Miracles & So Many Reasons to Smile"

MR says: A 17-year-old senior is using hashtags to find the strength and support she needs in her battle against liver cancer.

Kelsie Albee is very sick, but she's still a cheerful and happy patient.

“I am too blessed to be stressed,” she said.

Albee can't have many visitors at Primary Children's Hospital, but the 17-year-old Manti girl is getting support through her own social media hashtag.

“My last name is Albee, so why not hashtag Albee strong, so keep keepin' on, Albee strong,” she said.

Albee was recently diagnosed with cancer and spent what was supposed to be the first day of her senior year of high school in the hospital Thursday.
