A Nipomo High School graduate that battled childhood cancer is receiving some recognition for her contributions to other kids with cancer.
Melinda Marchiano hosted a documentary called "The Truth 365," which just won three Emmy awards for best documentary, producer, and editor.
On Sunday, she talked about the experience at her church in Santa Maria.
Last year, Melinda and her mom flew back and forth to Washington DC to record her part.
The documentary seeks to raise awareness about childhood cancer and correct the myths about it.
"People really wanted people to know the truth about childhood cancer, the lack of funding, and everything that happens in the lives that we're told about, and how it's rare, but it's actually not," said Marchiano.
