        Four year-old Khloe Fryman is always smiling.

        Even though the little Cynthiana girl is paralyzed from the waist down, that hasn't stopper her smile or her and her family from keeping her on her feet.

       Fryman was diagnosed with a rare tumor on her spine when she was born. After four rounds of chemotherapy, Fryman is cancer free, but does not have the use of her lower body.

       Khloe normally would 'army' crawl around, but thanks to her great-grandfather Jim Armstrong, who built her a walker out of PVC piping, Khloe is standing on her own and even walking.

      Khloe's mother Ella Fryman says having the walker also helps her daughter how to learn overcome adversity. She says she does not allow her daughter to say "I can't."

      Armstrong says he'd like to work with doctors to try to design special leg braces for his great-grand daughter.

     Khloe says when she grows up, she want to be a teacher.
