Zainab Mughal, from South Florida, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma - a cancer in the nerve cells - and needs life-saving blood transfusions as she undergoes chemotherapy.
While finding three donors is encouraging, "Zainab will need blood transfusions for the foreseeable future", OneBloodsaid, adding that it aims to find at least seven to 10 compatible donors.
In order to be a match for Zainab, the donor must be Pakistani, Indian or Iranian - meaning the donor's birth parents would have to be 100 percent Pakistani, Indian or Iranian - and must have a blood type of "O" or "A". A donor's blood would only be a match for Zainab if they, too, are missing the Indian B antigen, according to OneBlood. According to the family and her doctors, the Neuroblastoma is believed to be growing in her abdomen for about 10 months now. Three matching donors have been located, including a donor from the United Kingdom.
Mughal said his daughter's diagnosis was "the worst thing" they could have expected, until doctors discovered another problem.
Neuroblastoma most often occurs in infants and young children, and accounts for about 6 percent of all cancers in children.
"We were all crying.", said Zainab's father Raheel Mughal in a video.

To help the child in her fight against cancer, the non-profit blood donation organization OneBlood launched a campaign dedicated to finding people with the right blood type who can donate blood for Zainab. Around 800 new cases are diagnosed in the USA every year.
The cancer can spread to tissues beyond the original site, including bone marrow, bone, lymph nodes, liver and skin.
The organization said statistics show the only people who are likely to be a match for her are people of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent. The donor must also be blood type "O" or "A". So far, more than 1,000 local donations, as well as donations from other parts of the country have been tested and no additional matches have been identified.
