Queens toddler gets donation, celebrates Christmas home
A toddler in Queens, who was born without an immune system, will get her Christmas wish today. Isabella Maciel, 2, will sit on Santa's lap today as she celebrates her first real holiday at home with her family. Isabella said, "I good girl."
This Christmas Season marks a very happy ending to a painful sojourn for Isabella, who received the gift of life through a bone-marrow donation. Isabella was born on May 22, 2008 and, when she was just 5 months old, she caught a cold that turned into pneumonia.
