4-Year-Old Girl Celebrates Beating Cancer With A Beautiful Photoshoot

Cancer does not discriminate. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, old or young, anybody can develop cancer. Fighting against cancer is not an easy process. Both the patients and their families have to suffer a lot. But it’s the only way to save the patient’s life. With love, care, kindness, and medical treatment, hope that all patients can get well soon. Nothing is precious than good health. The story of battling cancer of the little girl Lula Beth Bowden has inspired millions of people. Recently, she has celebrated beating cancer with a beautiful photoshoot.

Back in March, four-year-old Lula Beth Bowden’s family were knocked when told by the doctor that she had a Wilms tumor – a type of pediatric cancer – on her kidney.
They were all heartbroken, but knew that Lula Beth’s fight was only just beginning.

Speaking to Good Morning America, Lula Beth’s mom, photographer Kristin Bowden, said: “We never expected this news to happen to us. It’s always sad, heartbreaking stories of others that you see, until it happens to you.”

The young girl had to undergo major surgery to not only have the football-sized tumor removed, but the doctors also had to remove her entire kidney.

We’ve had a lot of people already reaching out and sending their love and concerns, so we thought we could update everyone and mainly ask for all the prayers we can get. Our world has been rocked upside down. My perfect Lula Beth is currently being seen at Primary Children’s. She has been so sick, up and down since the beginning of March. We went to multiple doctors and just weren’t satisfied with the diagnosis’ and answers/medicine we were getting that seemed to not be solving anything. We knew it was something more. We ended up taking her to the ER, where they did multiple tests. They were able to find a huge tumor growing on her kidney. They immediately sent us out to Primaries. We are still in the dark on exactly what it is, but have a few different ideas of what type of tumor/cancer we are dealing with. She will be having surgery on Thursday for the removal of the tumor and from there they will decide treatment and how/when to start chemo. I can’t even bring myself to say the word, but my baby girl is battling cancer. Please, please send us all of the prayers that Thursday will go smoothly. We know prayers work and miracles happen. We know it is in God’s hands, but man this is hard. So please just say a prayer for us. #lulabethstrong #wilmstumor #cancersucks #pediactriccancer #cancerawareness

Over the following 22 weeks, the four-year-old then had to ensure 13 rounds of chemotherapy treatment.

This is cancer. Once I could get my thoughts together after hearing her diagnosis one of my first realizations was, “chemo will take her hair..” It gave me such a pit in my stomach. And yet, in the big scheme of things it seems so little and silly, but it still remains such a hard thing to grasp. I’ve been preparing myself for this moment for 10 weeks now. I knew it was coming. About a month ago when we were buzzing brothers hair for his quarantine cut, I mentioned to Lula to start preparing her, “This may be what we have to do to your hair at some point.” And to my surprise her reply was, “Let’s do it right now!” That’s my girl! 3 years old, not afraid of anything and ready to tackle on any task and with such grace. She teaches me so much daily. What matters, what does not. She is so strong and through this trial has been the light to our whole family. I strive to be more like her every single day. She is so brave. She is so strong. She isn’t letting anything get her down. We are continually thanking God for all of these blessings and answers to our prayers. My beautiful, brave baby girl. I love you so much. . . #lulabethstrong #fearlessfighter #wilmstumor #cancersucks #pediactriccancer #cancersawareness #wilmstumorwarrior #pediactriccancerawareness #morethan4 #childhoodcancerawareness #childhoodcancer #fcancer #wearesurvivors

However, despite being such a relentless battle for somebody so young, Kristin told GMA: “She flawlessly got through them all and remained the light in our family.”

On August 7, Lula Beth underwent her final round of chemotherapy, and the family awaited her results. “She has not complained once and graciously completed her course,” Kristin said.

Three weeks later on August 28, Kristin revealed to her 18.9K Instagram followers that Lula Beth had been given the all-clear and is now cancer-free.

To celebrate her win, Lula Beth took part in a stunning photoshoot with her mom, in which she was pictured holding a sign that emphatically read: “It came. We fought. I won.”

Kristen has been sharing her daughter’s progress on her Instagram page, and told GMA: “I have tried to document this season in our lives so we could look back on it forever. It’s been a very emotional time for us.

“We have been so happy and it has taught us to never take life or health for granted.”

Congratulations to the family! And well done to Lula Beth for being such an amazing fighter!
