ODESSA - After months of searching, doctors still can't find a bone marrow match for an Odessa woman with a unique background.

NewsWest 9 first told you about Cynthia Reschman more than a month ago.

She's suffers from leukemia and over the last decade she's had relapse after relapse.

This time, doctors hoped for a bone marrow transplant, but because Rechman is German and Hispanic, doctors haven't found a suitable donor.

Reschman's family says doctors are moving forward with a cord transplant.
