Ethan Powell was born in December 2006, and when he was 2 months old, he was diagnosed with leukemia. He is now at St. Jude’s in Memphis in need of a bone marrow transplant. His parents are desperately searching for a donor, and have contacted several radio and TV stations in their area urging people to register for bone marrow donation. Currently, the National Marrow Donor Program is having a free donor drive (usually costs $52.00) until May 21st, or until funding runs out. Evidently you can register for free, and a testing kit will be mailed to you. All it takes is a swab of your cheek.
