Save A Life - Join The Bone Marrow Donor Registry

5 years ago, Baby King was born with a rare genetic disorder called CD40 Ligand. He is currently on a list awaiting a match for a bone marrow transplant. The major problem is that only 5% of people on the bone marrow registry are African American. Ethnicity is a major element in finding a proper marrow match. King (no longer Baby King, he just turned 5 on July 13th), has been the subject of several local bone marrow drives to find a match. So far, no luck. Paula Miller is the executive director of the William G. Pomeroy Foundation assisting Denisha DeLee in trying to find a match. She says getting on the registry is easy and that it gives great satisfaction knowing that YOU may be the one who could save a life. Maybe even that of King DeLee. Here's my conversation with both Denisha and Paula.

Here's a way for you to get on the registry without waiting for a bone marrow drive.
