I was going to start this post by telling you how I know about this boy. About how my friend and book group member Lara emailed me and told me that this boys is the nephew of her son’s- but you know what? Does it really matter?
As my friend Stacey once said, “it’s always someone’s baby” and as parents, and as people who know what it is like to love a child, it is every parents’ nightmare.
I am asking you to please attend a bone marrow donor drive for Colin Flood, a 6 year old who was diagnosed with Acute Lympocetic Leukemia in December 2011. He has been undergoing chemotherapy since that time. His doctors say that his best chance of survival is a bone marrow transplant. And we need to find a match.
You could be a match, and save a little boy’s life.
The bone marrow donor drive, where potential donors will get swabbed, will be held tomorrow, May 23rd at 7:30 am to 11:30 am at Kidding Around Toy Store, 60 West 15th Street, at 6th Avenue. I will be there, and I encourage you to come too, if you can.
Please let others in the NYC area know about this drive. And let me know if you’re going to be there.
