Bone marrow drive in Mill Valley Saturday

Lara Akmehmet was diagnosed with leukemia in June and has been undergoing chemotherapy ever since.

The Stanford Blood Center is overseeing the effort to find a matching donor for the first grader.

All it takes is a swab of the cheek and $25 to be added to the national bone marrow registry.

Laras bone marrow drive is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Edna Maguire Elementary School in Mill Valley.
