Local teen will receive bone marrow transplant from her brother

An Orcutt family is sharing their emotional story in hopes of encouraging others to join the bone marrow registry. Madelyn Cofield is 15-years-old. The teenager found out she had leukemia in December of 2009.

The good news is she does have a bone marrow donor match. It's her brother but there are many who are still on a waiting list. If a match is not found, it could cost them their life. KSBY's Monica Quintero will have the touching story tonight on KSBY News.
