Omaha (KPTM) - Friends and family of a 13-year-old girl with stage 4 brain cancer gathered in west Omaha to raise money for her medical bills.
Bella Fuccio had her third brain surgery September 23 at Children's Hospital & Medical Center where doctors removed her temporal lobe.
The family has assistance from health insurance and Medicaid, but each surgery has cost more than $70,000. That does not include medicine, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Bella's mother, Shealey Maloni says that her daughter has been extremely positive.
"It helps us to be stronger too," Maloni said. "And she's got that darn smile on her all the time, regardless. She doesn't complain, never once has she complained about, ‘Why me? Why do I have this?' She's just like, ‘Let's just get it taken care of.'"
