A little girl who's braved cancer received a very special surprise: a shopping spree.

Emma Forster, 10, was diagnosed with leukemia back when she was only 3 years old. After 26 months of chemotherapy, steroids, weekly clinic visits, losing all her hair and numerous trips to the ER, she is now in remission.

To celebrate the milestone, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society teamed up with the Burlington Coat Factory in Nashville to give her a special shopping spree.

Her mom says it's a big help as she heads back to school.
