Effingham County girl rings bell to signify last round of cancer treatment

EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A little girl from Effingham County living with a rare form of cancer got her last round of treatment Friday.

Neveah Williams was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. She has undergone multiple surgeries, extensive chemotherapy, radiation, and other treatments. Doctors said she didn't have a high chance of living with the cancer, but she didn't let that stop her from being the survivor she is.

Neveah's family says she had good days and bad days too, but she smiled and danced through the whole process and she knew she would beat the odds.

"People can be wrong sometimes," Neveah said. "Sometimes, people can be right, but this time, they were wrong because I am perfect and I'm still living and I'm still a regular."

Neveah rang the bell Friday at Memorial Health's Anderson Cancer Institute for her last round of treatment, and she's looking towards the future.

"She has the same energy. We don't see any difference in her from the beginning of treatment until now, and knowing that we're at the end of treatment and we're over the hill, we know that everything's looking up for her," said Neveah's mother, Alana Williams. "We know if we stay positive, keep her positive, there's nothing that can get in her way. She doesn't let anything get in her way."
