Bone Marrow Drive Set For Providence Mixed-Race Infant

khts_healthA bone marrow need that strikes close to the heart of the staff at Providence Holy Cross Hospital in Granada Hills has prompted the scheduling of a screening drive from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, October 21.

 

Doctors hope to find a match for seven month-old Shayan, the grandson of Holy Cross security officer Fernando Gordero. Shayan was diagnosed with leukemia at three weeks of age and has since undergone several rounds of chemotherapy. A bone marrow transplant is the next step.

“As members of the health care profession, we frequently experience the heart-tugging stories of children facing life-threatening challenges,” wrote Providence spokeswoman Brigette Loden. “However is it not easy to receive such news when it affects someone close to us.”

Loden said that Shayan is the first-born in his family and has no siblings to be tested as a match. He is of both Hispanic and Asian descent, making it a challenge to find a match.

Potential donors are invited to come to the marrow drive in the third floor conference room at Holy Cross Hospital on Thursday.
