Greendale High School to host Bone Marrow Drive in honor of student with AML
GREENDALE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Greendale High School will host a bone marrow drive next week in the hope of finding a match.
The event will be held in honor of Jordan Schindler, a student at the school.
He was diagnosed recently with Acute myeloid leukemia.
Jordan needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant to fight his disease and so far, there's been no direct match found.
His mother says despite everything, Jordan is taking it in stride.
"I think that he sees that there will be an end to it even though he knows it's a long road. He's been able to focus on at some point that this will all be done," said Karen Schindler, Jordan's mother.
The Be the Match Bone Marrow Drive will take place Wednesday, May 8 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. in Rooms 103/105 at Greendale High School.
