Machesney Park teen dying of liver failure asks community for letters

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MACHESNEY PARK (WREX) — A Machesney Park teen dying of liver failure has one final request—she wants letters.

We first introduced you to Izabella Sotelo last month when she graduated early from Harlem High School. It was her dream to graduate but she would not survive long enough to make the ceremony.

A week later, friends and family threw Sotelo her own prom.

Izabella’s mother says the chaplain baptized her daughter a few days ago and she doesn’t have much longer.

If you’d like to send a letter or card to Izabella, here is the address:

Izabella Sotelo

8210 Tetterhall Lane,

Machesney Park IL 61115.
