A brother and sister from New Jersey need a bone marrow transplant to fight a rare genetic blood disorder.

6-year-old Brandon and 3-year-old Brianna Williams have Fanconi anemia.

The chance of one of them being born with it is one out of 160,000. The chance they would both have it is through the roof.

They are asking for your help.

You can come get a 60 second cheek swab to see if you are a bone marrow match in Piscataway at:
LIGHTBRIDGE ACADEMY
600 Roosevelt Avenue
Piscataway, NJ
Wednesday Feb. 25th
until 8pm

Or go to BeTheMatch.org

Also, you can donate to them at www.youcaring.com/bowandarrowbabies

"Bow and arrow" is how the kids mispronounced or misheard "bone marrow"!
