PERRYSBURG (13abc Action News) - Nine years ago, a trip to the dermatologist was a way for one family to find out their daughter had cancer. Addison Graham's father, Ian Graham, said she was diagnosed with Soft Tissue Sarcoma.

Now, the Perrysburg student is cancer free.

Graham's family was at Wednesday nights girls varsity soccer game against Anthony Wayne selling yellow shirts to raise awareness for childhood cancer.

"Addison was lucky to get through two surgeries and was blessed with just that. When other kids spend months and years in the hospital," said Ian Graham.

Last year, the non-profit raised $1,200. This year, they raised $3,600 for families battling childhood cancer.
