GREER, SC. — Every student at Riverside High School in Greer, South Carolina knows Bella Muntean is a warrior.
The freshman is battling osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that begins in the cells that form bones.
And while chemotherapy and trips to the Cleveland Clinic haven't kept her from taking an advanced course load or pursuing her passion for music, the inspiring freshman took a turn for the worse on on March 7.
Muntean posted on Instagram that "she coughed up a piece of a bronchial tube and began internally bleeding in her lungs."
The doctors told Muntean the tumors had grown and treatment is not working. She said she will be placed under hospice care, and needs a "miracle."
The full Instagram post is below:
Riverside High School shared the post this week, and asked its students to seek "perspective" during this challenging time.
Covenant United Methodist Church is holding a prayer vigil at 6:30 p.m. Sunday for Muntean.
The Facebook post for the event said, "Join us Sunday night in the Covenant Sanctuary to have a prayer vigil for Bella. All are welcome to join us for a time of prayer and worship in honor of Bella. Please share!"
