Guam - Taking a few minutes out of your busy schedule could save a life. 16-year-old Kaila Garrido needs a bone marrow donor. The former GW High School student was diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia back in February and is undergoing treatment at a cancer center in Texas. Friends and family on Guam are hoping to find a cure for Kaila by holding two bone marrow drives.
The first will be held this Saturday at the University of Guam Field House in Mangilao from 9am-12noon. Another will be held on Saturday, October 20 at the Agana Shopping Center. The process is simple and painless: simply fill out a registration form and give a swab of saliva.
It could just be the cure for Kaila or any others around the world who are waiting for the perfect match.
