Vallejo Boy Helps Light Up Capitol Christmas Tree


An 8-year-old Vallejo boy helped Governor Brown and the state’s First Lady light the Capitol Christmas Tree Thursday night in downtown Sacramento.

Angel Valencia Ceja was born with a congenital heart disease and has undergone several heart surgeries. He’s also going through occupational, speech and physical therapies through the state’s Early Start program.

Ceja’s mother said Thursday that she couldn’t be more proud of her son.
