ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WHDH) — A young girl got a special sendoff at a Florida hospital on the last day of her chemotherapy.
The toddler, Emilie, was released from the hospital Friday. Dressed in a Superman outfit, Emilie rang a bell to symbolize that she was leaving. The nurses and hospital staff who took care of her then sang her a happy song.
Emilie was diagnosed with leukemia when she was only 9 months old and underwent a bone marrow transplant. Now that she is out of the hospital, she and her family are staying nearby for her follow-up appointments with her doctor.
