Rhyan Loos’ personality shines as she continues to beat cancer

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Rhyan Loos likes to ride around on her hoverboard and hang out with her friends. You would never know she was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma in the fall of 2015.

Brad Loos, her father, was an assistant men's basketball coach at MU. Rhyan's story quickly went viral, and her fight became a national movement.

The Rally For Rhyan campaign has come a long way since then, and so has Rhyan.

"She's your typical 9-year-old girl now, which is pretty incredible to say," Brad Loos said.

ABC 17 Sports Director Andrew Kauffman sat down with Rhyan, and those closest to her, to show how far she's come since 2015.

"I always think of the people that love me and that I love and how they're keeping positive," Rhyan Loos said.
