AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

An Auburn University graduate not only donated her bone marrow to a child she had never met before. She also asked the little girl to be the flower girl in her wedding.

Skye Savren-McCormick from Ventura, CA was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood leukemia months before her first birthday.

She needed a bone marrow transplant and was connected with Hayden Hatfield Ryals from Auburn through a matching service.

Skye’s transplant ended up going successfully and her parents began talking with her donor through e-mail a year later.

Hatfield eventually asked Skye to be the flower girl in her Alabama wedding.

Skye and her family flew down for the occasion and the child got to walk down the aisle ahead of her donor.

The bride says she now considers the little girl to be a part of her family.
