Bone marrow drive tomorrow to benefit east Texas toddler

You have a chance tomorrow to help east Texas toddler who is running the risk of developing a potentially deadly disease.

A bone marrow drive is set tomorrow to find a match to 3 year old Emma Routh of Mont Alba.

Emma suffers from Falconies' Anemia, a disease that could lead to leukemia if she does not get a bone marrow transplant in the next year. The drive is from noon til 4:00 tomorrow at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler.

You must be between the ages of 18 and 59 to get tested. Now, the test is a mouth swab, so make sure you have a clean mouth because things like smoking and eating could contaminate the results.
