Volunteers step up to rebuild girl’s home

LONDONDERRY – Volunteers banded together to ensure Bella Tucker’s home was fully handicapped accessible when she returned home Sunday.


Bella was a healthy 8-year old girl, active in gymnastics and cheerleading, when she started feeling sick on Easter 2010. That night, she woke up with a raging fever and was taken by med-flight to Boston Children’s Hospital with Streptococcus pneumonia sepsis, and she fell into a coma.

She survived, but doctors had to amputate her arms and legs because of an infection.

After falling ill with an intense fever last Easter, the 9-year-old South Elementary School student was airlifted to Boston's Children's Hospital, where she was diagnosed with streptococcus pneumonia sepsis - a disease, often fatal, that can cause body-wide inflammation and dangerously inhibit circulation.

LONDONDERRY — A dozen or so Blue Lions cheerleaders whooped and waved as Bella Tucker's blue van turned into the
driveway of her Lantern Lane home Sunday afternoon.

Bella rolled down the van's ramp and up the walkway in her self-powered wheelchair as more than 300 neighbors, friends and well-wishers broke into a thundering applause and the song "(You're Amazing) Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars blared from loudspeakers.
