Cancer patient celebrates final chemo treatment

TEMPLE, Texas - Amber Cripe is ringing the bell after her last chemo treatment.

A Temple bar called Cactus Jack's raised money to help Amber with her medical bills last January. She has been living with Stage Three Metastatic Breast Cancer, and had a time to celebrate with her family and friends on Friday.

"I get to see Britney Spears in Austin! Thank you!," says Amber.

Amber will now have a lumpectomy at the end of May to remove the cancer spots, as well as her lymph nodes. She plans to follow this surgery with radiation.

Her recovery time is between two and three weeks.
