Young patient wants to spread awareness of childhood cancer

Destiny Herrera just sparkles.

From the dazzling smile to the glitter flecks that mingle with the freckles across her nose and cheeks, the 10-year-old just lights up a room, or on Sunday, Woodward Park in Manteca.

“I have sparkles in my bones,” Destiny said. “Once I sneezed and sparkles came out, so I guess I do have sparkles in my blood.”

She’s also got cancer in her bones, a victim of osteosarcoma.
