BRADENTON, Fla. -- At just a year old, Emilie Meza has the energy that lights up a room.
You would never realize she’s going through something very heartbreaking, fighting Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Emilie started chemotherapy just a year and a half ago. After having a bone marrow biopsy, tests showed she needed a bone marrow transplant.
The family has about 2 and a half weeks to find a donor.
“I beg as a mother with my heart in my hand for everyone to get tested,” says Roxana Meza, Emilie's mom.
