CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – A special lead-lined room is opening Wednesday at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte to treat rare cancers. Isabella Santos, 7, and her never-ending fight against cancer inspired and funded the room.
Santos died of neuroblastoma in 2012. She was diagnosed at two years old. Santos’ family and community supporters raised $1 million to create the special room that will help kids with specific cancers get treatment in Charlotte.
