A Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive was held Saturday at Collierville High School.

CHS Band Director Michael Wilson was recently diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL).

The only possible cure for ALL is through a bone marrow transplant, which replaces his faulty immune system with a strong healthy one.

The sooner the transplant, the sooner Wilson will be cured.

A donor drive was recently scheduled in Wilson’s honor to increase the pool of donors in hope of finding a match for him or someone else.

At the donor registry drive, participants had their cheeks swabbed to determine if they were a match.
