MedStar Host Registry Event for Girl With Rare Blood Disorder

People in Fort Worth came together Thursday night to hopefully save the life of a 8-year-old girl.

People got their cheeks swabbed at the MedStar facility to see if they are a potential match to Hallie Bea.

Hallie suffers from Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a rare blood disease and she requires a bone marrow transplant to beat the disease.

The drive was organized by MedStar and Delete Blood Cancer.

Even if people were not a match, they were able to register as donors, simply by swabbing their cheeks.
