Quinshuanita Thomas was diagnosed with Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria three months ago, and can only be cured by a bone marrow transplant.
Thomas and her family are asking minority donors to come out and join the marrow registry, a process that can be completed simply with a cheek swab sample.
The bone marrow drive takes place Saturday August 4 from 6-9 p.m. at the Trinity Church of God in Christ located at 700 S. Catalpa Street in Pine Bluff.
Tax deductible donations are also being accepted to help cover tissue typing costs.
