ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orlando girl with a rare form of cancer has found her miracle match.

Next month, Chloe Bella Carvahlo will receive a life-saving blood stem cell transplant that will help her body recover from the high-dose chemotherapy needed to treat her juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, also known as JMML.

Chloe Bella’s mom, Nayara Hermes, sent News 6 a video Friday with a message from her 4-year-old daughter.

With a bright pink bow in her hair and hospital bracelets on her wrists, Chloe Bella announces that despite the odds, she has found a match.

“We gave it all to God and he gave us peace and he showed us light and God gave me a donor,” Chloe Bella says, twirling with joy after shouting the good news.
