Rose McGrath is a 12-year-old girl from Battle Creek, Michigan. In 2012, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. After nearly three years of intense chemotherapy, she is now in remission. But just when Rose thought she could get her life back on track, her school dropped a bombshell on her.

Last week, her family received a letter from St. Joseph Middle School, saying she had been dismissed for failing to meet the school's attendance and academic requirements. She was devastated, having been with Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools her whole life. She told WWMT, "I didn't do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me."
