LONDONDERRY, N.H. -- A community came together to build hope for the homecoming of a young girl’s battle over a debilitating illness.

Doctors had to remove 9-year-old Bella Tucker’s arms and her legs to save her life seven months ago.

While Bella was away, contractor Tony Nigro teamed up with a design team to give Bella’s family home a complete - and free - makeover.

(NECN: Scot Yount, Londonderry, NH) - Nine-year-old Bella Tucker fights the tears 7 months after being rushed to the hospital with a raging fever, a rare pneumonia, and the little girl fights for her life in a coma.  

"It has been a tough time but Bella kept us strong. When we saw what Bella going through and experienced or watched what she was going through, it was hard to complain about anything," said stepfather Peter Roarty.
