“You know, every time she gets a cold, I wonder ‘Is this going to be the pneumonia that, you know, she won’t be able to fight off?’,” her mother Hindy Poupko told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell.

Poupko says they recently received a devastating diagnosis.

“Two weeks ago, we learned that she has a very rare bone marrow failure syndrome,” says Poupko.

That means she needs a bone marrow transplant and her parents are looking for a match.

“Every day is a risk because her immune system is basically running at 50 percent,” says Poupko.
