Video: "Bone Marrow Transplant Cures Young Golfer Of Sickle Cell Anemia"

The story of Marley Franklin, a 10-year-old girl "once held captive by excruciating headaches caused by sickle cell anemia" has been cured thanks to a bone marrow transplant from her little sister. Oh, and she's a lefty who played in the Junior World this year and has a killer swing.

Thanks to reader Diane for catching this keeper:

The sisters have a special connection that extends beyond shared blood.

They both share a passion for golf.

Marley’s parents had her play golf during her recovery and she’s proven a natural talent.

“She plays like Phi Mickelson,” her dad said.

Marley has entered quite a few tournaments, collecting plenty of medals along the way.

Earlier this year, Marley played at Torrey Pines, the same tournament Tiger Woods entered when he was a boy. She didn’t win, but Marley now has an international ranking among 10-year-old girls: “I’m 55th in the world.”

Okay, so some rankings are great things!
