Bone Marrow Donor Is Moved To Tears When He Meets The Young Girl He Saved

December 11, 2019

This time last year, Laila Anderson was battling a rare and potentially deadly auto-immune disease.

Last week, for the very first time, the 11-year-old met the bone marrow donor who saved her life.

Laila has hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, a rare auto-immune disease that nearly took her life. She had a necessary bone marrow transplant in January.

Last Thursday at a special event, Laila met her donor Kenton Felmlee, a pre-med student at the University of Kansas, for the first time.

Felmlee was moved to tears during the meeting.

"You mean the world to me and I love you," Felmlee told Laila on stage. "I'm so happy you're okay. That's all I could ever want."

"I feel like Laila is my closest friend, and I've only seen her for about 30 minutes now," Felmlee said later during a news conference.

"I don't care if we go to dinner or go to Disney World," Laila told him. "I just want to spend time with you."
