15-year-old girl with cancer honored with makeover

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Yo Go Girl!, a project that awards 12 women per year with a free makeover and photo shoot provided by area community businesses, honored 15-year-old Gabby Cart. Cart was diagnosed with cancer after initially being diagnosed with the flu.

Cart hopes to inspire other women who are going through tough times.

“Just keep your head up and look at the best parts of it, don’t look down,” Cart. “There is people that still love you.”

Cart said she enjoyed the makeover, like any normal girl would.

“I was a little nervous at first, because I’m not used to attention,” Cart said.

Yo Go Girl! will be hosting an event in honor of Cart. To learn more about the event, visit the Facebook event page.
