Roy Green - Sun Jan 13th - Hour 3 by TheRoyGreenShow published on 2013-01-13T22:12:06Z 4:05: Linda Leatherdale is a regular contributor to the Green Show (with Catherine Swift). Linda's 21 year old daughter Skye has just been diagnosed with acute leukemia. She already fought off the disease when it threatened her life as a child. Skye needs a bone marrow transplant and for that to be accomplished a perfect match has to be found from a healthy donor. Across Canada, 969 leukemia patients with Skye's particular type of leukemia also wait for bone marrow transplants to save their lives. Today we examine the challenges Skye and the 969 Canadians face and find out how we can all become living donors for this type of leukemia and other blood diseases.
