However, she received treatment at the ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital where the tumor that has grown within her body was removed and she recovered from the illness in August 2015.

Her Rise to Stardom

Calysta Bevier made her first attempt to stardom in December 2015 when she performed a rendition of Platten’s hit song, ‘Fight Song’ at the popular Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The lyrics of the song embodies the strength and determination one needs to keep fighting. It actually speaks of her in her fight as a cancer survivor. Her beautiful rendition earned her the first taste of fame as the song went viral, gaining lots of views after her father uploaded it on a social media site. She became an internet sensation after she caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres who invited her to her show where she, in fact, got the chance to meet with Rachel Platten, the original Fight Song singer.
