Nurse returns to work at hospital where she was treated for cancer

A young woman has returned to work as a nurse at the same hospital where she was treated for hospital as a child.

Amelia Ballard was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was just 17 months old at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Before starting kindergarten, Amelia had already beaten cancer twice.

The hospital shared a pair of photos on Facebook saying that last month, Amelia fulfilled her childhood dream and returned to the hospital where she received treatment to begin her career as a pediatric nurse.
