A swab event took place Thursday at St. Clair College in hopes of finding five-month-old Madalayna Ducharme a stem cell donor.
Madalayna was recently diagnosd with malignant infantile osteopetrosis, a genetic disorder that prevents her bones from working properly and they become too dense. This disorder attacks vision, hearing and is life threatening.
A second will take place on Saturday January 28th at the Canadian Blood Services office 3909 Grand Marais Road East from 9am to 2pm.
The age requirement to register as a Stem Cell donor is 17 to 35.
