Pearce Quesnberry, Teen Cancer Survivor, Raises $12,000 For Philadelphia Children's Hospital

Inspired by her own battle with brain cancer, 13-year-old Pearce Quesnberry has dedicated herself to helping others battling the disease and promoting institutions searching for the cure.

Through the Pearce Q. Foundation, the cancer survivor has raised thousands in donations to support local children with cancer and to donate to cancer research efforts.

Pearce recently presented the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) with a $12,000 check, WPVI reports. Pearce completed her treatment at CHOP and hopes to give back to the hospital's cancer programs.
