    Donor found for Navajo boy with rare blood disease
    Tuesday, August 26, 2003

    A bone marrow donor has been found for Dakota Kwiecinski, a 2-year-old Navajo boy with a rare and serious blood disease.

    A stem cell match was found in a preserved umbilical cord. The cells will be transferred to Dakota's body.

    Dakota's family has been campaigning to register more Native Americans and mixed-Natives on the National Bone Marrow Registry. A blood drive will be held this weekend at the Totah Festival and a fundraiser will be held Saturday at San Juan College's Henderson Fine Arts Center.
