Brandon is 8 years old and has been in need of a bone marrow donor for the past 5 years. At the age of 4, Brandon was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia, a genetic blood disorder that significantly decreases his blood cell counts, and puts him at a higher risk for developing leukemia.
The only proven cure for Fanconi Anemia is a bone marrow transplant. Brandon has undergone several blood and platelet transfusions as he waits for a donor.
