Childhood cancer survivors celebrate life

ST. LOUIS – Childhood cancer survivors celebrated life Saturday.

More than 75 cancer survivors united for the celebration outside St. Louis Children's Hospital. They displayed a special quilt patched together by kids who beat cancer within the last 10 years.

"Remaining positive and celebrating your life can inspire victory. It can give hope to those who are still fighting, or those who are out of treatment and are having a hard time," said Danielle Braunstein, who has been cancer-free for 13 years.

Braunstein says it's her job now to spread positive energy and inspire other battling the disease.

Children's Hospital says 30 years ago only 30 percent of children survived cancer. These day the survival rate has increased to 80 percent.
