Hannah Ochoa has been diagnosed with cancer three times, the first time when she was only 18-months-old. 

Her parents say she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia first received chemotherapy for about seven months and cleared it. 

Less than two years later she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Her family says she was treated for that for about two years and cleared it for about 10 months. 

One month ago, 6-year-old Hannah Ochoa relapsed and was diagnosed with Leukemia once again. 

This time her family says she needs a bone marrow transplant because going through chemotherapy again could cause heart damage.

In order to help Hannah find a donor, the family will be holding a bone marrow registry drive next Saturday at St. Peter and Paul School Grammer Hall beginning at 8:30 in the morning and going on until 2 in the afternoon.
