Bone marrow drive to save life of 7-year-old

Baylor Frederickson needs a bi-racial bone marrow donor.

Bone marrow drive organizers are hoping Bay Area residents will turn out in force again Wednesday to try and save the life of a 7-year-old boy battling leukemia.

Baylor Frederickson needs a bi-racial bone marrow donor. His parents are Japanese and German and, so far, a nationwide search for an Asian-Caucasian marrow match has come up empty.

Marrow drives were held over the weekend in Albany and Walnut Creek.

Another drive will be held Wednesday from noon to 2 p.m. at the University of California, Berkeley Shared Services building on Fourth Street.

Joining the bone marrow registry is easy and painless; all you have to do is have their cheek swabbed.
