Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - Madisyn Tolfa is 7-year-old. She's in the second grade, lives in Niagara Falls, and has acute lympho-blastic leukemia.

Madisyn received her final chemotherapy treatment after 2 1/2 years.

She loves school, her friends, and even a boy named Donovan. She likes to dance, is big into art, singing, and music.

When Madisyn first lost her hair due to the chemo, there were some kids at school who bullied her and called her names.

She may only be 7-years-old, but she is wise beyond her years.
