News 6 receptionist Karen Gehl rings bell to celebrate end of chemo

Gehl has worked at WKMG-TV for 25 years

ORLANDO, Fla. – Thursday was a very special day for a member of the News 6 family.

Karen Gehl, who has been the station's receptionist for the last 25 years, had her final chemo treatment and rang a bell at the Florida Cancer Specialists and Research Institute to celebrate the occasion.

Karen began treatment for breast cancer in December.

Doctors described Karen as a fighter, but her fight is not yet over. She said she will soon undergo surgery and radiation treatment.

Karen will be back Friday at News 6, greeting guests with a smile and answering the phones with her pleasant voice.

Best of luck, Karen! The News 6 team loves you.
