Community comes to the aid of deputy in need
Last updated 4/15/2020 at 8:57pm
More than 180 people attended a special event staged by the South Precinct of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office to find possible donors in an effort to find a match that could lead to a cure for Deputy Molly Thunder with her battle with Aplastic Anemia.
The deputy’s best chance for a cure is a marrow transplant from a matching donor from the Be The Match registry. Unfortunately, no one in Molly's family was a match for her.
Molly is currently going through treatment in hopes of suppressing the disease, but due to its severity her doctor believes she will most likely need a marrow transplant.
In addition to being a bone marrow match, volunteers must be in good health and between 18 and 44 years of age to qualify as a potential donor.
Potential donors who were not able to attend the event in Mill Creek can still register online by visiting: Join.BeTheMatch.Org/Match4Molly.
