Ornament Celebrates Girl's Lifesaving Transplant

Annabella Spears was diagnosed with rare liver disease but a transplant at Children's Health saved her life

NBCUniversal, Inc.

A little girl named Annabella Spears has something good for North Texans to consider as they look for an ornament or gift for Christmas.

The 10-year-old loves art, and artwork around her family kitchen celebrates the life she has enjoyed because of a liver transplant.

She was just months old when her parents learned she had a rare liver disease. A transplant followed, an operation at Children's Health in Dallas that saved her life.

This year marks a decade since her life-saving operation, and her artwork inspired a Christmas ornament.
