NH donors sought to help 2-year-old with cancer

BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — The parents of a 2-year-old New Hampshire boy with leukemia are asking people to become bone marrow donors in hopes of finding a match.

Police in Bedford are hosting a bone marrow drive Saturday until 6 p.m. at police headquarters to help Aybel Martin of Goffstown.

Abel’s parents tell WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1by3B0b ) their son went through several rounds of treatment and they thought he was in the clear until the cancer resurfaced in October.

They are asking potential donors to be tested and placed on the bone marrow donor registry.

Donors should be between the ages of 18 and 55.
