Reporter: This week, 24-year-old Montana brown started a new job as a pediatric nurse at Aflac cancer center at children's healthcare of Atlanta, a place she knows well. She's a two-time cancer survivor herself. First diagnosed at two with a rare type of childhood cancer affecting muscles and bones, and then again at 15. Both times, she was treated with at the very same hospital where she returns to work. She remembers that. The nurses here the love they showed me really helped me and pushed me to want to become a nurse. Montana knows what its like to be young and up against a battle. It was a calling she knew early on. I would always say I'm only going to nursing school to do pediatric oncology. I don't want to do anything else. I'm going to school strictly to do that. Holding her new badge tonight. A dream realized. I'm not walking through the doors as a patient. I'm walking through as a staff member and I get to be an idea of hope and inspiration for other kids.
