MIDLOTHIAN, Va. -- A Chesterfield girl who is officially cancer-free was treated to a drive-by parade in her honor Saturday.

Brynna Kate Allen was diagnosed with leukemia in 2018 right after she turned two years old.

Brynna, who has been in remission since January of 2019, has been undergoing intense chemotherapy treatments every day up until now.

Loved ones celebrated the toddler’s win over cancer Saturday with a car parade at her church in Midlothian.

Family and friends call Brynna a living miracle.

“I think it was just with a lot of empathy and I was just thinking a lot about what she must be going through,” said Louise Roberts, who is a neighbor of Brenna's grandparents.”I was just thinking as she rode by, people will never look at her without thinking about the miracle God has provided."
