Lehigh Valley

Fundraiser for boy who's battling leukemia

Family, friends support cancer patient

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Family and friends came out to support a 14-year-old Lehigh Valley boy who's battling  leukemia.
They held a  fundraiser for Jose "Angel" Mojica Saturday at Victory Firehouse in Bethlehem.
Angel needs a bone marrow transplant, and he recently found out that 12 potential matches have been found.
 He'll be traveling to Tennessee  next month to start testing to find the most compatible match.
Saturday's event raised money for that trip.
Angel was surprised by the turnout.
"It makes me good," he said. "It makes me feel cared and loved."
This is Angel's second bout with leukemia; the first time the cancer went into remission.
