Maya Charles-Rivera, 10, was reunited with friends and classmates Monday at Shatekon Elementary School in Clifton Park after receiving a lifesaving kidney transplant.

On Maya’s return to school, classmates created friendship bracelets. It was a reminder that they helped her through a terrifying seven-month-long ordeal, sending letters and video messages to her at her Boston hospital bed.

Those same classmates welcomed her back with a big celebration and lots of smiles and applause.
