Becoming a bone marrow donor can save a life

It's just your name on paper, but it could save a life.

Bonfils Blood Centers and the Be the Match Registry hosted a drive for bone marrow donors in Pueblo.

Kristin Taylor, a former bone marrow donor, was there to speak about her donation last year to an anonymous recipient.

She found out the woman is a 59-year-old leukemia patient, and she knew she had to help out.

There's a way Pueblo can really pitch in to help.

"Pueblo is a melting pot of ethnicity, and there are lots of ethnic backgrounds that don't get on the registry," said Taylor. "We're just a melting pot of people, and I just want to make a difference."

There's another chance to be on the registry May 19 beginning at ten in the morning at ABC Home Health Care.
