It takes a special kind of person to become an organ donor. It is especially special to be a donor of bone marrow. While it does not sound like much, it can actually become a painful procedure. But when Hayden Ryals found out that Skye Savren-McCormick, a 3-year old girl with cancer needed one, she didn’t hesitate. In fact, after Skye’s recovery, she even invited her to be a flower girl at her wedding.

It was a godsend that Hayden came into the life of little Skye. Her cancer had progressed so much that she needed a bone marrow transplant. But Hayden gave some of her bone marrow to save the life of this special child. Months after the transplant of Skye, her parents received a letter from Hayden asking if they would like Skye to be her flower girl. Skye was only three years old, and she had also gone through a transplant operation.
