PFLUGERVILLE, Texas — Camryn Anderson -- the daughter of a Pflugerville officer who found out in 2018 that she has a rare blood disease -- is starting chemo treatment.
Pflugerville Police Sgt. Kurk Anderson and his wife, Kimberly, found out in late August why bruises on 9-year-old Camryn's body weren't healing: her bone marrow wasn't making blood cells anymore.
The 9-year-old girl has aplastic anema and needs a bone marrow transplant. In December 2018, Anderson found out that she has a bone marrow donor after her family launched a campaign several months before.
Day one of her chemo treatment started Jan. 16, her mother confirmed to KVUE's Hank Cavagnaro. Her transplant is scheduled to happen on Jan. 25.
