13-Year Old Battling Brain Cancer Stays Positive

By Rebekah Rae. CREATED Jan 24, 2014

Omaha, NE - Saturday night will be a very special one as thousands of dollars will be raised for "Sunshine Kids".  It's a non-profit that helps children fighting cancer.

 
Bella Fuccio is the definition of a sunshine kid.  She can walk into a room and brighten anyone's day.  But life isn't always bright for Bella, for the past two years she's battled a severe form of brain cancer.
 
Even after painful days and undergoing multiple brain surgeries, Bella doesn't let it get her down.  The 13-year old lives everyday with a smile, ''You just have to stay positive, it's like if you have bad attitude about it how can you think of yourself coming out of it, so I'm always or try to always be as positive as I can."
 
Saturday evening, 16 local "celebrities" from doctors to DJ's will take the stage at the CenturyLink center to raise money for kids like Bella.  
 
At the end of the night, she will present the winning trophy gaining the spotlight every star deserves.
