West Sacramento, CA  (MPG) - A West Sacramento family is searching for a hero: a bone marrow donor match for their six year old son, Tyler Getz, who is suffering from a rare blood disease, severe aplastic anemia. Tyler has spent most of the summer at the UC Davis Children’s Hospital with his mother, father, brother and grandparents at his side. The sooner Tyler finds a match, the sooner he’ll be able to come home.

Join BloodSource/Be The Match for a simple, quick and painless cheek swab to see if you're a match for Tyler on Friday, September 29, 2017 from 2 pm until 6pm at Roundtable Pizza in the Southport Town Center (2525 Jefferson Blvd.).

To join the bone marrow registry you must: Be between the ages of 18 and 44 years old; Make a good faith commitment to donate if you are a match to anyone in need; Meet health eligibility guidelines.

Those interested in being a match, but unable to attend the bone marrow registry drive, can request a swab kit to be mailed their home by visiting https://join.bethematch.org/teamsupertyler
