A Thermalito girl battling cancer has had quite a weekend.

We first told you about Journey Miller a few weeks ago.

She and her family were traveling to Oakland on a regular basis for cancer treatments.

She finally had to have a tumor removed from her brain.

On Saturday supporters hosted a benefit concert for Journey and her family at the “Miner's Ranch Saloon” in Oroville.

The concert organizer personally had a friend who died from cancer and was touched by Journey's story.

“Makes me feel inspired and she’s brave and I see how brave she is and talking with her mom man you know I couldn't handle it. If I was that age you know so it's inspiring how they’re going about this and beating it,” said William Mangus, the event organizer.

The event was from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday evening.

Journey’s got some good news this week!

She found out she has stage two glioma when the doctor's removed her tumor, they got all the bad cells out.

She still has to get follow up MRIs, but she doesn't have to go through chemo.
