Donor found for toddler with rare form of leukemia
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A bone marrow donor has been found for a 2-year-old San Francisco boy suffering from a rare form of leukemia.
Because of Jeremy Kong's mixed racial background, he faced incredibly long odds of finding a donor. Tuesday, his family told ABC7 News that a 90 percent match was found in Hong Kong.
The extraction will take place next Monday and transplanted into Jeremy on Tuesday.
