ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Friday marked a major milestone for one St. Louis little girl.

Avery Lucas, 4, underwent her last cancer treatment Friday at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The smiling little girl has been battling leukemia since she was 2-years-old.

To mark the milestone, she rang a bell on a new billboard for Children’s Hospital. She rang the bell from the hospital by pressing a button on an app.

“She’s hopefully not going to remember much of this but this will be something she can say ‘Oh my gosh this is something I went through,” said Avery’s mother Morgan Lucas. “I was the first kid to ring the bell, so what a feel-good moment to be driving down I-44 and hear that bell ring, and that a kiddo got their life back.”

Drivers on I-44 heard the bell ring around 3:30 Friday afternoon.
