A young cancer survivor received a warm welcome home after spending several days in the hospital.
West Hamlin firefighters escorted Bella Masters, 8, to her home on her way from Cabell-Huntington Hospital.
Dozens of family members, friends and neighbors waved and greeted her along the trip.
Bella is battling neuroblastoma, which is bone cancer, and had to have part of her leg amputated during her stay in Huntington.
Her big brother said he's glad to see his little sister feeling better and back home. Eyewitness News was told Bella is doing well.
Neighbors in her community said Tuesday was the least they could do to show their support for her and they will continue to keep her in their prayers.
