More Than 100 Show Up For Bone Marrow Donation Event To Help Soldier

DENVER (CBS4) – More than 100 people signed up in hopes of saving the life of a stranger. They had their cheek swabbed on Saturday to become part of the National Bone Marrow Registry.

Many of the people were moved after seeing CBS4’s story about a Colorado National Guardsman asking for help.

Staff Sgt. Mark Jenkins has leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant, but he can’t find a match.
