SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — An 8-year-old girl from Utah has breast cancer.

Chrissy Turner complained about a lump in her chest last month.

Doctors diagnosed it as a rare form of breast cancer.

Chrissy’s mother, Annette Turner, said, “It is a very rare form of breast cancer. It’s called secretory carcinoma. Only 1 in one million are diagnosed and she is the youngest that they’ve run across having this particular type of breast cancer.”

Her father has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and her mother is a cervical cancer survivor.

Chrissy’s fight will begin with a mastectomy at the Huntsman Cancer Institute.

Friends of her family have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her medical bills while the Turners vow to stay strong for Chrissy.
