An important day on Saturday for a young girl in search of a miracle. Laura Irving, a Leukemia patient and former resident of Idalou, has recently suffered a relapse. All her family has been tested and no one is a match for a bone marrow transplant, which Laura desperately needs.
This is how you can help, a bone marrow drive is set for Saturday at the Idalou Club House at 7th and Chestnut in Idalou. All that means is you'll give a small sample of blood. Everyone is welcome, but since Laura is Hispanic, her family is hoping the Hispanic community will really support this effort since the odds of finding a match are a little better with a hispanic donor.
