A Fredericksburg, Virginia girl has a new beginning thanks to a stranger. This weekend she got to meet the person who gave her that new start.

Jozlyn Miller battled Sickle Cell Anemia. It's a blood disorder that can be fatal.
Today, Jozlyn is a healthy young lady thanks to a bone marrow donation from Petra Poker.

"This girl must be so strong, so lion-hearted," said Poker.

"She is incredible," added Miller about Poker. "I feel like I owe my life to her."

Poker donated to a bone marrow registry in Germany in 2003. She never imagined this would happen. Now, Jozlyn is considered cured thanks to her.
