There's a 25-year-old woman in Alabama named Hayden Hatfield Ryals and she decided to become a bone marrow donor through a charity called Be The Match.

It's really easy to register, all you do is register online, swab the inside of your cheek, and mail it in.  Then they contact you if they ever find a match who needs a bone marrow transplant.

About a year after Hayden signed up, they called her about a one-year-old girl in Ventura, California who had leukemia.

So Hayden took the next step and donated some of her bone marrow and it saved the girl's life!

Her name is Skye, and she's 3 years old now.  Hayden says she thinks of her as family. So much, that she asked Skye to be her flower girl in her wedding!! 

Check out some photos below!

Just absolutely amazed at how this story has traveled the world! We truly hope that Be The Match is flooded with donors!
