Desperate Choices: To Save My Child synopsis

Plucky 16-year-old Cassie Robbins' (Reese Witherspoon) carefree life is drastically changed when she learns she has leukemia. At first she undergoes chemotherapy, but the treatment fails, and only a bone-marrow transplant will save her. With the list of possible donors very small, Cassie's parents (Joanna Kerns, Bruce Davison) must make an impossible decision: keep searching and risk running out of time, or allow their young son, who is a perfect match, to undergo the dangerous surgery.
