My First Miracle

It's December, and all one 17-year old girl really wants for Christmas is the chance to make it to eighteen. Angelica (Katya Martín) has Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare cancer that causes bone marrow to produce bad blood cells. It's treatable with the right bone marrow donor, but as with any such donation it's hard to find a match. Her dad Mark (Matthew Rauch) and her mom Heidi (Valerie Cruz) are working hard to pay the bills -- chemo is crazy expensive -- but otherwise all they can do is wait.
