Katia Conte, her mother, fought back tears as she honored the memory of her daughter at the blood drive at Saint Matthew's Church. Daniela was only 5 years old when she was diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer in 2016.

"We were carving pumpkins with the rest of our kids and she wound up laying on the floor crying," she said. "We didn't know what was wrong with her."

After taking her to the hospital, Daniela was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma.

"A parent's worst nightmare - you immediately say you must have the wrong child, not my child. Check again," Katia said.
