WATCH Girl celebrates being cancer-free with party

A little girl celebrated being cancer-free with a birthday party-turned charity event to help her friends who are fighting the same fight that she fought and won.

Zoe Figueroa and her family hosted the July 6 event with 200 guests in attendance. The celebration took place days after the 8-year-old's actual birthday, which was the same day of her final treatment for stage 4 neuroblastoma.

"She wants to have another one," dad Freddie Figueroa of Lakeside, California, told "Good Morning America" of the party. "She likes making her own videos and dancing and dress up. After each chemo treatment, during chemo, she'd just be dancing around. We never gave her opportunity to be sad. She's always in good spirits and happy."
