Bridget Kelley was just beginning second grade in September 2016 when she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood cancer. She spent 88 days in Boston Children's hospital undergoing chemotherapy and surgeries. Her condition required a stem cell transplant in March of last year. So, when it was time for her to return to school last month after being gone for 15 months, the whole town had a big surprise for her. As Bridget walked to Merrymount Elementary School in Quincy, MA, she was met by hundreds of students, parents, teachers and police officers holding colorful signs welcoming her back to school. They all braved the 4-degree weather to make Bridget’s first day back something she’ll never forget! See more about the heartwarming scene. Her parents thought it may all be too much for her, but said “she soaked it in and totally went with it”.
