NORFOLK, Neb (KTIV/US92) -
Some Siouxland residents came together Saturday to add their name to a list that just might save lives.
The organization Be The Match was in Norfolk Nebraska getting people added to the national bone marrow donor registry. Norfolk residents were inspired to bring the event to town when they found out their relative, Kris Miner, had developed a rare form of cancer known as cutaneous t-cell lymphoma. Relatives say that her disease is so rare, none of the over ten-million donors in the bone marrow registry are a match.
Organizer Chad Callenius said, "She's one of ten people in the world that have this cancer. We're holding this event to try to help her out and people like her."
Relatives say they had a steady stream of new donors in Norfolk. A similar event for Kris Miner was held in Rockwell City two weeks ago. Anyone who would like more information or to sign up can go online to the Be The Match website.
