Knoxville (WVLT) -- Bone marrow is critical to treating Leukemia, better known as cancer of the blood, but many patients die waiting for a donor.
Today, a donor drive hoped to change that.
The Cooperative Appalachian Marrow Program set up shop at the Knoxville Museum of Art, hoping to add more names to the National Bone Marrow Register.
"There are still people who do not find matches even though the marrow program has grown considerable in the time since then," said Dan Gmyrek, a former marrow donor. "So we need more people to sign up as donors, all races, all creeds, and all colors because people who need theses come in all those different varieties."
If you missed today's drive, but would still like to find out more information on bone marrow donation, you can click on the link below.
