4-year-old cancer patient gets 'princess treatment' on last day of radiation at Cincy Children's

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A little girl from Beavercreek has put her favorite hobbies -- dressing up like a princess and admiring horses -- on pause for the past six months. Ella Phillips-Shimovetz, who is 4, was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in May.

But here's some good news: Ella had her 28th and final radiation treatment on Wednesday. And her family and the medical center staff made sure she felt like a princess on the big day.

Early Wednesday, the little girl met a horse-drawn carriage at Kroger in Liberty Township, not far from Cincinnati Children's Liberty Township campus where she receives treatment.

The next step for Ella is chemotherapy to combat the Rhadbomyosarcoma of the biliary tract, according to Shannon Kettler, spokeswoman for Cincinnati Children's Medical Center.
