(WTXL) - A little girl who was diagnosed with a rare cancer last September is dancing her way through the pain.

Nevaeh Williams is known as the dancing queen with a twist. Instead of her thinking about when her last day will be, she dances away her pain.

"When I first started, it was kind of rough and my mom told me I was gonna have to fight so dancing is my way of fighting and it keeps me going," Nevaeh said.

She was diagnosed with a rare cancer in September.

According St. Jude, Nevaeh's diagnosis, Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor is extremely rare and fewer than 200 cases have been reported. Naveah just happens to be one of them.

While most of us go throughout life worried about the little things, she's smiling, dancing away her pain every chance she gets and inspiring others to do so as well.
