Bella Pacini wished for two things for Christmas: a new liver and her house to be decorated for Christmas.

The former came true on November 18th, when the 14-year-old got the call from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta that, after months of waiting, she would finally be receiving a new liver.

But the surprises didn’t end there. As Bella, who has been battling serious health issues for most of her young life, prepared to be discharged on November 29th, Cherokee County Firefighters got busy fulfilling her second wish.

Prior to Bella’s arrival, numerous Cherokee County firefighters worked together to decorate her family’s home in Woodstock, Georgia, so it would be ready for her return. The firefighters were joined by country music star Mark Wills, and Shine, a local company that installs lights during the Christmas season. The volunteers went all out for the brave teenager. And Bella was shocked.

“A phone call turned into a group of unbelievable men and women decorating our house for Christmas. Bella always says we never have enough lights and that we always needed to go bigger,” Bella’s mother Tracy said in a news release from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “This awesome group of people turned that into a reality and made it bigger and better than she ever imagined. She was speechless when she came home the day after Thanksgiving.”
