“What do you feel you've learned from cancer?”

When Faith Marr was four years old, she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer on her spine. At the time, doctors were uncertain if she would survive.

She had eight major surgeries and some of her vertebrae were replaced with titanium rods.

Faith is now 10 and came to StoryCorps with her father, Jerris Marr, to reflect on her fight against cancer.
