An eight-month-old cancer patient is fighting for her life, and a community is rallying behind her. Hadley Mercer was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia when she was six-months-old. She is now at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville undergoing her second round of chemotherapy.
Thousands walked through the door of Holy Trinity in Louisville Sunday to offer a cheek swap and see if they were a match…so many that they ran out of kits in less than three hours! A line formed out the door for people wanting to join the registry and have a kit mailed to them so they could still participate. It was the largest bone marrow donor drive in Kentucky history.
