Jasmina's Fight

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The family and doctors of a little girl from Manhattan are on a desperate search. Jasmina Amena, who turned 6 Wednesday, suffers from a rare and particularly deadly form of leukemia. Her only hope is a bone marrow transplant. So far a match has not turned up, and her doctors say time is running out.

Read more and watch video footage at source.

Jasmina lives a few doors down from Isabella's room at NYU Medical Center and is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant for a rare form of leukemia. Since she was adopted, she has no family that can be contacted as matches and therefore they're hoping to get lucky with an anonymous non-related donor. Doctors estimate that without a transplant, she only has 2 months to live.

Jasmina's school in New York City is having a donor drive this weekend, but you can also request a home test kit.

One for Jasmina
