NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A Queens teenager is hoping to become the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s youngest Woman of the Year in a charity fundraising competition.
At just 15-years-old, Lisette Watters of South Ozone Park has already spent more than a decade helping in the battle against leukemia.
It all started with her baby sister, Caroline.
“Luckily, I was a perfect match and at the age of 4, I gave her my bone marrow to save her life,” Lisette told WCBS 880 reporter Jim Smith. “All I wanted for her was to get better.”
