SARASOTA, Fla. - An ill child got a special surprise from Santa Thursday.
Makayla is 3 1/2 years old. She's currently undergoing chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and recently went through a complete cranial reconstructive surgery.
Thursday night, Makayla met Santa for the first time as he delivered gifts to her and her family.
Makayla's mother unfortunately had to leave her job to be with her daughter at all times. Makayla's father is a firefighter, who had to take on a second job to make ends meet.
The best part of the night? The family found out that they're getting a free trip to Legoland.
