Bone morrow donor drive for 12-year-old Atlanta girl

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It is a call for help for a 12-year-old metro Atlanta girl who has sickle cell anemia and requires a bone marrow transplant to save her life.

A southwest Atlanta church pulled together to try to help save Valaria Fenderson.

Church members took a simple swab of the cheek to see if they are a match for a bone marrow transplant during a donor drive this weekend.

It will be weeks before the family knows if there will be a suitable donor for her.
