Bone marrow donor drive Friday at Reds' Hall


GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Reds will be trying to save the life of one of their own on Friday during a bone marrow donor drive at the club's Hall of Fame.

Reds season sales manager Chris Herrell is battling a rare form of blood cancer and his only hope for a cure is a bone marrow transplant. There is currently no match for Herrell in the transplant registry.

Herrell, 39, is married with three young children.

Friday's program is from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. ET and is open to people ages 18-44. Prospective donors will need to complete a questionnaire and have the inside of their mouth swabbed to see if they are a match.
