South Florida girl in need of bone marrow donor

Family of Briana Vega, 11, searching for willing donors

Headline Goes Here

A South Florida girl is in need of a bone marrow donor.

Briana Vega, 11, was diagnosed on 2012 with Acute Lymphocytic leukemia. After being in remission for nearly a year and a half, Vega developed a secondary cancer in October 2013.

The recently diagnosed Acute Myeloid leukemia now requires Vega to have a bone marrow transplant.

On Briana's Warriors Facebook page, the warriors left a message those who go to read about her battle:

"We ask that everyone research the procedure to better understand the process. All we would like to do is ask if anyone is willing to be a Bone Marrow Donor, please go get tested and maybe we can find a match for Briana or so many others!"
