You see, Bridget was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (a type of blood cancer) in September 2016.

The second grader had to undergo chemotherapy and surgeries before getting a stem cell transplant from her little sister in April 2017. But last week, Bridget was cleared to return to school.

The second grader had to undergo chemotherapy and surgeries before getting a stem cell transplant from her little sister in April 2017. But last week, Bridget was cleared to return to school.

And when Bridget headed out for her first day back at Merrymount Elementary School in Quincy, Massachusetts, something wonderful happened.

Almost 150 classmates, parents, and police officers had gathered along her walk to school to officially welcome her back with open arms.

Everyone braved 3-degree weather while holding signs welcoming Bridget back. It was a beautiful moment.
