Sarah was doing great in her career so far until a shocking heartbreak. Sarah's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her mother explained how she had to go through chemotherapy. Later that week Sarah was going to go to a competition, but her mother couldn't come because she was too weak. When Sarah started to skate, she saw her mother in the stands. Her mother came to see her skate even though she was in so much pain.When Sarah was 16, she was in the World Junior Figure Skating Champonship and she won!
