Thanks to your donations to the KTBS  3 St. Jude Dream Home, we are proud to say she is in remission and has been for months. 
"So many people give every year. I would say thank you because you don't know how far your money goes towards helping every kid at St. Jude and we're very thankful to all that y'all do," said Sarah.
Sarah is not in the clear just yet. She still has 38 weeks of chemotherapy left to complete. 
She'll start classes at Bossier Parish Community College in the fall.
