Eight-year-old Paige Johnson heads to the Twin Cities this week for her 17th round of chemotherapy. She's been making the trip to the Minneapolis Children's Hospital every Friday as doctors try to shrink the desmoid tumor in her neck to make it more operable.


After this week, she will have nine more weekly visits before they switch to every other week. All in all, Paige will have gone through a year of chemotherapy before her 10th birthday.
