A Tucson family is holding a bone marrow drive this Saturday at the St. Peter and Paul School near Campbell and Speedway from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

6-year-old Hannah Ochoa was diagnosed with Leukemia for the third time last month. The first time she was diagnosed she received seven months of chemotherapy treatments. The second time, she was treated for 2 years.

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