This documentary is the true account of a little girl who was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare bone disease. McLain Thornquist found out that she had Ewings Sarcoma when she was only eight years old. Her world was quickly turned upside-down. Before they knew it, the family of five experienced the reality of chemotherapy, medical demands, and emotional turbulence. This documentary takes a deeper look at the journey the family went through and how a loving community collaborated to show innumerable love and support. McLain is a little fighter, but she proved to be nothing short of a big miracle.
