Welcome Home Party and Circus Event for Bella Tucker

Preparations continue for a welcome home party in honor of a Londonderry third-grader whose battle with a rare form of pneumonia has rallied the support of residents throughout New England.

Bella Tucker, 9, was hospitalized and spent five days in a coma last April, and underwent surgery to remove her limbs - and save her life - later that month.
