Duke Patient Going Well After Stem Cell Transplant

Posted Updated
DURHAM, N.C. — Doctors say a 2-year-girl is making progress in the fight of her life.

In May, WRAL had a story about 2-year-old Annabelle Green, who was diagnosed with a rare and deadly health condition that can cause brain damage if not treated.

Annabelle spent more than a month at Duke Medical Center, where she had a stem cell transplant. Now, 40 days after surgery, her body has not rejected any transplanted cells.

Doctors believe Annabelle is even doing well enough to be released.
