Battling leukemia, Jhayliegh Rosales, 8, of Garden City, Kan., is years away from thinking about having her first baby. Her parents are hoping their decision for Jhayliegh to have a procedure at Children's Mercy Hospital in which her ovarian tissue was surgically removed and frozen may give her a chance at motherhood in the future.

The procedure was done before Jhayliegh begins chemotherapy and then a bone marrow transplant. Eric Adler and Tammy Ljungblad The Kansas City Star
