The Miami Herald / Associated Press, December 13, 2012
An 11-year-old leukemia patient whose whereabouts have been unclear since her mother unexpectedly took her from a Phoenix hospital last month appeared to be safe and cared for, according to an interview broadcast Wednesday.The mother, Norma Bracamontes, blamed the hospital for complications that led to her daughter's right arm being amputated. The family and Emily were being intimidated by the hospital over bills, she said. Phoenix Children's Hospital released a statement Wednesday, saying privacy laws prevent officials from disclosing patients' financial information or details regarding treatment.
