Family grateful for bone marrow drive

I am writing this letter to thank the people of Lancaster County, the Buford community and especially Hopewell United Methodist Church for sponsoring a bone marrow donor drive in December. We moved from Lancaster more than 25 years ago as newlyweds, and yet our old friends and church family continue to amaze us.

After learning that our 15-year-old daughter, Laura Margaret, needed a bone marrow match, these wonderful people worked quickly and tirelessly to organize a first-class bone marrow donor drive.

And just as impressive as their dedication to helping Laura Margaret find a bone marrow match was the response from the generous people of Lancaster County. You came out to the church, were tested and agreed to have your information placed on the bone marrow donor registry. More than one hundred new people from Lancaster were added to the national registry that day, and we are honored, humbled, grateful and excited.

Thank you all for reaching out to help this special little girl. We always knew we could count on our Lancaster family, friends and church for many things, but you have gone over and beyond anything we could have dreamed. We will keep you updated on Laura Margaret’s progress as time goes on.
