Montana Brown was diagnosed with a rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects connective tissue, at just two years old. After a year of chemo, she went into remission for 13 years. But when she was 15, the cancer returned and she had to undergo another year of chemo.

It was a difficult time, but it also helped Brown decide on a career path. She was so impressed by the compassionate nurses who treated her at the Aflac Cancer Center that she wanted to become one of them. And now the 24-year-old Georgia woman is working at the same hospital that treated her twice for cancer as a kid.

"I knew I wanted to help people and I knew that I wanted to use my story to help others and give them hope and inspiration,” Brown explains. “The more that I thought about it, I knew being a pediatric oncology nurse would be the greatest field for me.”
