Bone Marrow Donation Information

By The View | Jun 9th, 2017

On Friday June 9, 2017The View shared the touching story of Kevin Oldenburg, whose life changed dramatically eight years ago when he saved a stranger's life by becoming a bone marrow donor to a then 14-year-old boy named Jeremiah. After a year had passed, Kevin was allowed to contact Jeremiah and the two exchanged several emails. 

"We've had several emails back and forth and it's just amazing to put a name and a face with somebody that is now your twin," Oldenburg told the co-hosts.

On Jeremiah's 20th birthday,The View made his birthday wish of meeting Kevin come true.

To register as a bone marrow donor, visit www.dkms.org.
