Metropolitan College of New York and Assemblyman Keith Wright & "Preserve Our Legacy" invited students, alumni, friends and neighbors to "Be the Match" at a bone marrow drive, in support of Bone Marrow Awareness Month on Monday.
The bone marrow drive was held to help find a match for 10-year-old Lloyd "LJ" Jones and 5-year-old Nyiah Young.
LJ is the first child to battle hyper-eosiniphilic syndrome, which is one of the rarest forms of cancer.
Nyiah recently suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with Moya Moya Disease.
Moya Moya Disease is a thinning and separation of the blood vessels in the brain.
She is in need of a bone marrow transplant and has no matching donors within her immediate family.
70% of leukemia patients do not have a family donor.
