There’s a Marine who needs you. From the Bakersfield Californian:

LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) – A Marine who received a liver transplant because of a near-fatal infection that developed after his return from Iraq may now need a bone marrow transplant.

Lance Cpl. Christopher LeBleu, 22, has a “high probability” of needing the transplant because he has developed aplastic anemia, which has caused his bone marrow to stop producing enough red blood cells to keep him alive, Loma Linda University Medical Center officials said Wednesday.

The hospital appealed for blood donors with Type O blood to join a registry of potential bone marrow donors so doctors can find a potential match for the Marine.

They also appealed for people to give blood that can be used for additional transfusions for LeBleu, who was stationed at Twentynine Palms before he was hospitalized in January.

Please help if you can.
