Paris Prinsen is not your average 12-year-old girl.

In her short life, she’s already survived cancer twice. But she’s more than just a girl who beat cancer. She’s a girl with a life to live and dreams to fulfill, and while “cancer survivor” is a very important distinction, she gets to define herself as much more than that thanks to her team of doctors, nurses and helpers at both Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund.

The 2016 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon will take place Aug. 29 through 30. You can donate and learn more here.

To hear more of Paris’ story, as seen on NESN’s “Red Sox Gameday Live,” check out the video above.
