Rocking out to her favorite tunes from her hospital bed, Macie Schnepf just makes the best of every situation.
“I just like to listen to my music, and it helps me calm down,” said Macie Schnepf.
The girl with the big smile is undoubtedly a fighter. Three years ago she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma cancer that struck her leg.
“It basically ate away her fibula bone. It disintegrated it,” said Sarah Schnepf, Macie’s mother.
Macie beat it and a year later and learned to walk again. She even got back to her love of swimming and even swam with Olympic legend Michael Phelps.
“He’s super nice and really tall in person,” said Macie.See 12 News
