Community Asked To Rally For Baby Jacob

Bone marrow drive planned for Sunday.

Jacob Fierro

This Sunday, the community is being asked to “say Ahhh.”
That simple act will be enough for a cheek swab that will determine if anyone
is a bone marrow match for two year-old Jacob Fierro, who has been battling
leukemia.

 

The toddler needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life,
and because of the difficulty of finding a match, a high number of people need
to be tested.  Those with Hispanic
heritage are especially sought after.

 

The test is non-invasive, simply a cheek swab. The public is
encouraged to stop by First Christian Church in Canyon Country for the test,
between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m on Sunday September 7th.

 

City of Hope
will be conducting the bone marrow drive.  

 

First Christian Church is located at 27421
Homyr Place, off Soledad
Canyon Road.
