Guam - Another bone marrow match has been found on Guam. 22-year-old Dededo resident Rafaelito Deausen says he received a call from the Hawaii Medical Center a month ago informing him that he was a potential match for a 7-year-old boy. He says further tests concluded that he was in fact a match and needed to go to Hawaii for the procedure.
"They had sent a package to me through the mail," DeAusen, a local musician and photographer, explained. "I had to get blood work done at ITC. I sent in the forms and the results came in, so I ended up being the closest match to the patient."
DeAusen will be heading to Hawaii on Monday morning and will be there for about a week. He responded to a bone marrow drive about a year ago at the University of Guam.
15 players from Guam's men's national soccer team are in San Diego for training camp. Matao Head Coach Karl Dodd says, "We are using this camp to evaluate the players off-island and to implement the new professional standards and playing style to those players."More >>
