A happy update to a story we brought about a young boy battling Acute Leukemia.

Loved ones say they found a bone marrow match for Kyle Smith. They are holding a prayer vigil for him Thursday at 7:00 P.M. at Elkhorn City Park.

Hundreds of people turned out for several bone marrow testing drives for Kyle. He's expected to have the transplant in May.

Kyle will recover in Cincinnati for about a year.
