Random Act of Kid-ness: Boy Donates Bone Marrow to Sister

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Shelbyville, IN, where 3 year old Jameson Kessler is donating bone marrow to his younger sister Samantha, who suffers from a rare blood disorder called thalassemia. The disorder destroys red blood cells, and the main cure is a bone marrow transplant from a perfect match. Jameson said:

“I’m going to make her feel better and then I’m going to save her when she’s in trouble.”

To raise money for the bone marrow transplant costs, the kids’ mom Kyrie set up a GoFundMe page, with an anonymous donor pledging to match every dollar donation up to $500.

Jameson likes to call himself “Marrow Man.” He truly is a super-man!
