One-year-old girl celebrated the end of the fight against cancer by calling the bell at the hospital where she was treated.

In the video his wife Kate Hudson is holding their daughter, while he, before the assembled people points to the bell and shows her how to use it.
Eliza happily pulling the cord to ring the bell, and everyone around starts clapping. A moment so special that she can’t deny myself the pleasure to call again.

It was a long journey for Eliza, which found cancer in June 2019, when she was only 10 months. As written on one of the pages to raise funds for the family, she had to remove a kidney due to complications resulting from her tumor.
In July she found Rathenow tumor, a rare and aggressive tumor which occurs in infants and young children. A few weeks later the doctors found another tumor in her head, and she was diagnosed with atypical teratoid-abdeidna tumor. This is a rare and fast growing cancer of the brain and spinal cord, according to St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Elise had surgery to remove the tumor and the brain tissue that it touched. Then at the end of July began a course of aggressive chemotherapy.
Chance and Kate documented the process of her recovery to Instagram and TikTok, including surgery and chemotherapy.
Over the past months, Eliza has won the hearts of millions of people and thousands of people congratulated her on social networks, where parents shared a video of how she rang the bell.
“Oh, My God. I’m so happy for you, congratulations!!” – someone has written in Instagram. “Eliza you’re a fighter!!! I followed your path of recovery Tik Tok for some time and I am so happy to see her ringing that bell”.
