[VIDEO] Girl with cancer taken from hospital speaks out from Mexico

NBC News’ Miguel Almaguer reports on Emily Bracamontes and her family, who spoke to Telemundo and NBC News.

“My mom was only trying to save my life – I was happy she took that decision,” said the 11-year-old girl, who has leukemia.  Emily’s mother, Norma Bracamontes, snuck her daughter out of the hospital, even though the child has a catheter in her heart, because she said she was constantly being pressured about health insurance and mounting medical bills.
