Sierrah Lemons is now a top athlete with an amazing story from when she was a just a toddler.

Right now she's in Disney World with her Amateur Volleyball league, playing for a championship.

As a child, Sierrah was was diagnosed with eye cancer.

On her third birthday, doctors removed her right eye.

Sierrah's teammates say she hasn't let what some might call a disability slow her down. And Sierrah says she sees her one eye as a strength, rather than a weakness.

Sierrah's future looks very bright. She has several Division One and Division Two college programs recruiting her.
