Bohemia girl struggles to recover from rare paralyzing disease

In 2018, Emma D’Antonio, 8, of Bohemia became paralyzed from the neck down and was diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis, a rare polio-like disease. Physical therapy has helped restore the use of much of her body, although she still has partial paralysis in her legs. (Credit: Newsday / Shelby Knowles)
