She had a tumor weighing 3 pounds. The surgery to remove it was successful, but days later, she needed open heart surgery because cancer cells had traveled to her heart.
Serber underwent chemo and radiation and missed a lot of school. Now, she's 9 and there is no evidence of cancer in her body, and the annual Children's Cancer Fund Luncheon is a big part of her success.
The luncheon raised money for research into childhood cancers, and that research helped doctors with Serber's rare kidney cancer.
Serber's mom, Cara, is beyond grateful. She and Kathleen Strand are now committee co-chairs for this year's 27th Annual Children's Cancer Fund Luncheon, which is set for April 17.
Brave kids fighting cancer will have the time of their lives walking the runway with their celebrity friends at the luncheon.
Hall of Famers and former Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman will once again be honorary event chairs.
This is an uplifting fundraising and cancer-fighting event. For tickets, call 972-664-1450 or go to www.ChildrensCancerFund.com
