On February 26, 2009, Libby’s H*O*P*E*™ posted a story about Meghan Redenbach.  As you may recall, Meghan Redenbach , 13 years old, was diagnosed in December 2008 with a rare form of ovarian cancer known as “fibrosarcoma.”  This form of ovarian cancer is so rare that there are only 30 documented cases in the U.S.  Meghan is only the second child to be diagnosed with fibrosarcoma.

Today, we were thrilled that WGRZ News, located in Buffalo, New York, also reported on Meghan’s story.  If you are interested in watching the 5 minute video news story created by WGRZ’s Matt Pearl, CLICK HERE.
