Nina Brumbaugh is a 33-year-old single mother from Lake Worth, Florida, who has been diagnosed with cancer twice, since she was 28 years old.
The first time she was diagnosed with breast cancer and the second time it spread to her bones.
Nina hasn't missed a day of work, even though she is raising her 7-year-old son and received chemotherapy treatments that caused her to lose her hair.
"Her outlook on life has inspired and touched everyone she knows," her mother, Sharon Freudenberg said.
When she was diagnosed with stage four metastatic breast cancer, Brumbaugh had seven surgeries over the course of three weeks, including a hysterectomy.
Now she is recovering and is enrolled in college to become a medical assistant.
When she graduates, Nina plans to work with cancer patients, helping and encouraging them with her experience and positive attitude.
"I cannot begin to express her amazing spirit," her mom said. "What she says began as 'a bump in the road' has changed into a story of living life to its fullest. My little girl has become my big superhero! She is my greatest gift, my miracle child!"
