7-Year-Old Cancer Patient Seeks Compatible Bone Marrow Donor

Data pix.

Seven-year-old leukemia patient Ryan Jacoby is in desperate need of a bone marrow donor.

He has already defeated the disease once, but after a recurrence of cancer this month, he requires a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

But his family members are not a match, the family explains. And because Ryan is of both Vietnamese and Caucasian descent, finding an appropriate donor may prove difficult.
