BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Some good news for a teenager who's battling leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant.

Doctors said they've found 12 potential matches.

Angel Mojica, 14, will travel to Tennessee in October to start testing to find the most compatible match out of the dozen.

His family will hold a fundraiser this Saturday at Victory Firehouse in Bethlehem to cover travel expenses.

Doctors found the potential donors through the "Be the Match" registry, which is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program.
